Synopsis
Few postwar German features confront the Nazi persecution of the Jews and the Holocaust. Many retro films about the Third Reich in fact suggest that average citizens and good Germans were the true victims of history. Maetzig's early early East German production is a striking exception, a formally ambitious historical portrait based on the wartime experience of Joachim Gottschaik. Rather than caving in to political pressure to divorce his Jewish wife, they commit suicide.
