A 1984 East Berlin simple surveillance assignment: Capt. Gerd Wiesler, a Stasi officer and a specialist in surveillance, has been assigned to keep an eye on Georg Dreyman, a respected playwright, and his actress girlfriend, Christa-Maria Sieland. Though Dreyman is known to associate with blacklisted director Albert Jerska, a known dissident, Dreyman's record is spotless.

Wiesler's sympathies shift from the government to its people - or at least to this one particular person

A pair of polite, bland-ish German teenagers approach a woman, her husband and son at their lakeside summer cottage. It soon becomes apparent that the young men have no intention of leaving. When the husband tries to throw them out, physical violence erupts, and the family is held captive.

Das Schloss = The castle by Michael Haneke( Visual )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

K. arrives at an isolated village to take up his position as a land surveyor for officials at the Castle. No one will confirm or deny his appointment, and his attempts to approach and appeal to Castle officials are met with indifference, obstinacy, and bureaucratic red tape. K. has status but no position, two dolts for assistants, the forlorn barmaid Frieda as a fiancée, and arguments with everyone. An icy blizzard blows unendingly, immeasurable time passes, and K. trudges repeatedly back and forth, waiting for the smallest scrap of information or news from the Castle, that they have need of him, or at least recognition of his existence
Benny's video by Michael Haneke( Visual )

42 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The title character in Benny's Video is a twisted 13-year-old boy who sees the world as one big video, sometimes starring himself. His bedroom resembles a TV production studio, with a videotape library, monitors, and cameras, including one camera pointed out the window so he can watch a pixilated version of "the view" on TV. Another camera records Benny--he can watch himself watching himself--and a bank of buttons and remote controls allow him to instantly switch from the real-time cameras to television programs to videos. His parents are mostly absent, and not particularly interested in their kid, but they get very interested when they discover that their quiet child has done something unspeakably violent, for no apparent reason. "Why did you do it?" they ask, and the boy just says, 'Because.'"--Ken Dubois, Reel.com

"December 1944: Berlin lies in ruins and the war is as good as lost. Goebbels is convinced all the country needs is a re-energizing speech from the Führer. Adolf, however, is only a shadow of his former self; demoralized and depressed, he hides in his office. The only man who can help is Germany's finest acting teacher, Adolf Grünbaum -- a Jew"--Original container

15 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in German and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Leben der Anderen HGW XX/7( Visual )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in German and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ost-Berlin, November 1984. Der DDR-Staat sichert seinen Machtanspruch mit einem erbarmungslosen System aus Kontrolle und Überwachung. Als Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz (Ulrich Tukur) den linientreuen Stasi-Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe) auf den erfolgreichen Dramatiker Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) und seine Lebensgefährtin (Martina Gedeck) ansetzt, verspricht er sich davon einen Karriereschub. Womit er nicht gerechnet hat: Das intime Eindringen in die Welt der Observierten verändert auch den Stasi-Mann. Das Eintauchen in DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN - in Liebe, Literatur, freies Denken und Reden - eröffnet Wiesler eine nie gekannte Welt, der er sich immer weniger entziehen kann. Ein gefährliches Spiel beginnt. Das Leben der Anderen erzählt kompromisslos ein Thema aus Deutschland, das so authentisch, spannend und einfühlsam bisher noch nie inszeniert wurde
Von allem Anfang an by Christoph Hein( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die 50er-Jahre im Süden der DDR: Der 15-jährige Pfarrerssohn Daniel darf aus politischen Gründen nicht mehr die Oberschule besuchen. Damit Daniel dennoch sein Abitur machen kann, will sein Vater ihn zu Verwandten nach Westberlin bringen. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Flucht am Vorabend des Mauerbaus erinnert sich Daniel an die zurückliegenden Jahre und eine Pubertät in der noch jungen DDR. Dabei ist Daniel durchaus nicht als rein fiktive Romanfigur zu verstehen, sondern vielmehr als Alter Ego des großen Theater- und Romanautors Christoph Hein. In neun Episoden erzählt er vom Ende einer Kindheit und zeigt dabei unaufdringlich, wie das Politische immer wieder in eine scheinbar normale Jugend einbricht. Kunstvoll verwebt er in "Von allem Anfang an" Elemente seiner eigenen Biographie mit Fiktivem
Mein Führer die wirklich wahrste Wahrheit über Adolf Hitler by Dani Levy( Visual )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Levy does his best to portray Hitler as a poor devil, an attempt that of course cannot succeed, because someone who admits that he is having a hard time can no longer be a poor devil. And just to make sure than no one will think of accusing him of trivializing the Third Reich or making fun of victims' suffering, Levy uses the family of Jewish actor Grünbaum as a moral counterweight to the Nazis."--Spiegel Online
Jugend ohne Gott by Michael Knof( Visual )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zu Beginn des Nationalsozialismus in Deutschland. In einem vormilitärischen Ausbildungslager wird ein Schüler aus der Klasse des opportunistischen Gymnasiallehrers Rockstroh ermordet. Dessen humanistische Bildungsideale werden mit einer auf Heldentum gedrillten Klasse konfrontiert. Gleichnishaftes (Fernseh- )Drama nach dem Roman von Ödön von Horváth, der in einigen markanten Details signifikant abgewandelt wird, wobei die für den Roman bedeutsame Anwesenheit eines mahnenden und gütigen Gottes als relevantes Gegenbild zur verführten und verrohten Jugend nahezu ausgespart bleibt. Bestechend vor allem durch die ausgezeichneten Darstellerleistungen in den Hauptrollen.[film-dienst]
Der Stellvertreter by Rolf Hochhuth( Visual )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two systems: the Nazi machine versus the Vatican and Allied diplomacy. Two men struggling from the inside. On one side, Kurt Gerstein, a real-life chemist and SS officer, supplied the death camps with zyklon B while he tirelessly denounced the crimes and alerted the Allies, the Pope, the Germans and their churches at his family's and his own risk. On the other, Ricardo Fontana, a young Jesuit, a fictitious character who represents all the priests who had the heart to struggle against savagery, often paying for their courage with their lives. Countless priests, some known, others anonymous, who simply were not content to live with the silence of their church's hierarchy."--IMDb

Die tragische Geschichte der leidenschaftlichen Liebe zwischen dem Dichter und Hauslehrer Friedrich Hölderlin und der jungen Bankiersfrau Susette Gontard (1796-1806), die mit ihrem Tod und seiner Einweisung in die Irrenanstalt endet, vor dem Hintergrund der auf Süddeutschland übergreifenden Französischen Revolution. Ein teils poetisch, teils hausbacken inszeniertes Dichter-Porträt, das seine Qualitäten aus der präzisen Beschreibung der Arroganz der Mächtigen gegenüber der Kunst und neuen Ideen bezieht.
