Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin
Tomorrow on May 20th at 8pm the “Zeughauskino” at the German Historic Museum will be showing the 1962 Franz Harnack´s film adaptation of a classic of German literature: Hans Fallada´s “Jeder Stirbt für sich Allein” (the not exactly politically correct or fair Anglo-Saxon title is “Every Man Dies Alone”).
The story of a middle-aged, working-class couple who after their son´s “heroic death” for the Nazi “Vaterland” begin their own little anti-regime campaign is a must for anyone interested in history, literature and / or Berlin. On second thoughts, it´s a must for everyone.
Particularly when shown for free:-)
