Die Ehe der Maria Braun The Marriage of Maria Braun by Rainer Werner Fassbinder ( Visual )
16 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in German and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first of a trilogy about women in post-World War II Germany, The marriage of Maria Braun, turns the melodramatic story of the titular heroine's climb up the economic ladder into a historical allegory about both the post-war German "economic miracle" and 1970s West Germany. During the allied siege of Germany in the last year of the war, Maria's new husband is shipped off to the Russian front before the marriage is consummated. As she struggles to survive wartime deprivations, Maria haunts the local train station, seeking out information concerning her husband. When it appears that she's a widow, Maria takes a job as a barmaid and befriends a black soldier from the occupying allied troops, who sees to it that Maria's family receives vital food and supplies. The opportunistic Maria eventually takes a job with a wealthy importer, building herself up to a position of power and indispensability

Die Rothschilds Aktien auf Waterloo The Rothschilds' shares in Waterloo ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Rothschilds was the first of three stridently antisemitic movies made in 1940 under the Nazi regime. A purportedly "historical" account of the Rothschild family's rise to fortune, set mostly in Great Britain during the Napoleonic wars, the movie reflected a wildly ambitious racial-political agenda. Beyond its indictment of "Jewish" intrigue and avarice, The Rothschilds aimed to show the "Judafication" of British society at Rothschild hands, and thus demonstrate why, in Joseph Goebbels' words, Britons had become "the Jews among Aryans." Yet the film's dramatic conventions did not always mesh with its racial politics, and when the film was released in July 1940, German audiences were left unclear as to just who they were mainly supposed to hate. Goebbels had it pulled from distribution; a year later, a much-revised version, purged of any conceivable sympathies for its British characters, was released. The revamped movie was renamed The Rothschilds: Shares in Waterloo; this is the version presented on this DVD. But by the time of its re-release, the movie's moment had passed. Germany's air war with Britain was winding down to an inglorious end, while at home, a new, wildly popular film, Jud Süss, had become the regime's preferred vehicle for whipping up antisemitic feeling. If, in the end, The Rothschilds proved a less effective incitement to hate, it wasn't for lack of trying. With its striking juxtaposition of Nazi social criticism and racial theory, its twin assaults upon Jewish and British character, and its deft recycling of many key myths surrounding the House of Rothschild, this film deserves far more notoriety than has been its due

Aeneis by Virgil ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A new edition of the Aeneid requires not only a systematic and reliable assessment of the text, but also a satisfactory and, if possible, complete description of the manuscripts' transmission. Here, not only were the seven Late Antique codices studied anew, but the recensio was also extended by drawing on sources from the Carolingian Age only some of which were incorporated by earlier editors. To this end eight tesimonies which had never been studied previously were collated. As a result the reader has access to an apparatus criticus which is mainly dedicated to textual matters."--Publisher's website

Ewiger Rembrandt (Eternal Rembrandt) by Hans Steinhoff ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1942 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This biographical portrait of the 17th-century Dutch painter makes oblique references to the frustrated artistic ambitions of the Führer. It stresses the conflict of a determinedly individualistic artist and the hostile forces he encounters in his daily environment. Steinhoff introduces Rembrandt at the height of his career receiving a commission to paint a group portrait, the Company of Captain Frans Banning Cocq, better known as the "Night Watch." However, when the painting is completed, the Guild rejects it and refuses to pay the agreed fee. During the dispute, Rembrandt is informed that his wife Saskia is dying. After her demise, Rembrandt's life takes a decidedly downward turn; his home is auctioned and his acquaintances abandon him. He finds shortlived happiness with his simple maid Hendrickje Stoffels but gossip and ecclesiastical disapproval disrupt their harmony and Stoffels later dies in premature childbirth. The film, shot partially in Amsterdam and the Hague, is notable for its painstaking attention to period detail. The leading art forger was released from prison to duplicate the "Rembrandts" used in the film. The only objectionable scene is one involving Jewish moneylender, depicted in racist terms. Ewige Rembrandt was first shown in June 1942, during Berlin's Kunstwochen (Art Week)
