Affaire Blum by Erich Engel( Visual )

23 editions published between 1948 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a real case in Magdeburg during the Weimar Republic. The Jewish manufacturer Jacob Blum is framed for the murder of his accountant due to the accusations of Gabler, a thief and dealer of stolen goods. Anti-Semitic prosecutors accept these accusations, as they believe all Jews are criminals. Even with evidence indicating the crime was committed by Gabler, the prosecutors refuse to change their stance. Blum's only hope is a commissar in Berlin, who takes over the investigation and finds the real murderer."--Container

The Blum Affair (Affaire Blum)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In detective-story style based on a 1926 German court case, this film portrays conservative nationalism prior to Hitler's rule. Dr. Blum, a Jewish manufacturer, is falsely accused of a murder. Even when the real killer's identity becomes evident, the state prosecutor refuses to accept Blum's innocence. One of few German movies to deal with the anti-Semitic roots of Nazism. Written by former Ufa scriptwriter and director Robert A. Stemmle and directed by Erich Engel, director of the 1928 Berlin premiere of Brecht's The Three Penny Opera, The Blum Affair-based on a 1926 court case in Magdeburg-portrays the intertwined anti-Semitism and conservative nationalism that existed in certain circles in Germany prior to Hitler's rule. This film remains an important historical document
Pünktchen und Anton ein Film nach dem gleichnamigen Roman und Theaterstück von Erich Kästner by Erich Kästner( Visual )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once upon a time there was a little girl who was rich but unhappy. Her parents cared more about earning and spening money than about their daughter. And there was also a little boy, and he was poor but happy. Although his mother had to work hard to earn a living for them both, she had plenty of time and love to share with her son. Fairy tales often begin this way, but Erich Kästner makes this romantic scenario the backdrop for a modern story about a friendship that transcends class boundaries. Although the two children are quick to jump to one another's assistance, Pünktchen, the sassy little lady, learns of the gross injustices in society. Her empathy with the underprivileged leads to her dressing as a little match girl, purveying her wares to wealthy passersby. So, the end of the film also resembles a fairy-tale

Don Manuel, que resulta herido, no sabe que don Luis es el hermano de su mejor amigo, don Juan, y que la dama en cuestión, Ángela, es su hermana. Don Luis es el hermano segun
