9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Zwei Elfjährige prügeln sich auf einem Spielplatz, einem der beiden Jungen werden dabei Zähne ausgeschlagen. Die Eltern des "Opfers", Penelope und Michael haben die Eltern des "Übeltäters", Nancy und Alan, eingeladen, um den Vorfall wie vernünftige Menschen zu klären. Was als friedlicher Austausch über Zivilisation, Gewalt und die Grenzen der Verantwortlichkeit beginnt, entwickelt sich schon bald zu einem Streit voller Widersprüche und grotesker Vorurteile. Und schliesslich platzt die dünne Haut der bürgerlichen Kultiviertheit auf: Vier Erwachsene geraten aus der Fassung. Brutal und rücksichtslos werden Grenzen überschritten, provoziert und schliesslich deutlich, dass sie alle hinter ihrer zivilisierten Maske einen "Gott des Gemetzels" anbeten. Auf dem Schlachtfeld dieser Tragikomödie versinkt am Ende nicht nur ein Handy in der Tulpenvase... (Quelle: Umschlagtext)

Life for life Maximilian Kolbe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2014 in Polish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Auschwitz, 1941. One of the prisoners, Jan, escapes from the German concentration camp while working at a gravel pit. Thanks to the help of good-hearted people he finds shelter. There Jan hears tragic news about ten random inmates sentenced to death by starvation by the Nazis as a punishment for his escape. One among the convicts is Fr. Maximillian Kolbe, a Franciscan priest who volunteered to die in place of one of the inmates. Now Jan is not just fleeing the Nazis, but also from his guilt for his involvement in Kolbe's death. He goes to visit Niepokalanów, a very large Franciscan monastery where Fr. Kolbe had been the founder and superior. There Jan wants to learn what were the motives behind his decision to die for another prisoner, a complete stranger. Though free from Auschwitz, Jan will continue to be confronted by the life and death of Maximilian Kolbe wherever he goes. In addition to Jan - torn between wanting to forget and a fascination with Kolbe - another key character emerges, Brother Anselm. He is a devout young Franciscan priest who quietly but strongly witnesses to Kolbe's heroic faith and love, and then rejoices at the Beatification of Kolbe by Pope Paul VI. Later Kolbe will be canonized by his fellow countryman, Pope John Paul II, who proclaimed Kolbe as the "patron saint of the difficult 20th century". This acclaimed film was directed by Krzystof Zanussi, and stars Christoph Waltz and Edward Zentara in powerful performances
