"The story of the children and teenagers of a church and school choir run by the village schoolteacher and their families: The Baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers.

Acclaimed director Michael Haneke (Hidden, Funny Games) won the Palme d'Or at the 2009 Cannes FIlm Festival for what is considered to be an instant classic of world cinema. The White Ribbon is Haneke's masterpiece and a film that will be talked about for years to come." --Kanopy website

Nichts fehlt - außer Dir by Yvan Goll( Book )

Die Geschichte einer überwältigenden Liebe. Claire und Yvan Goll waren eines der schillerndsten und extrovertiertesten Dichter-Paare des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts, sie kannten Rilke, Picasso, Einstein und Dalí. Claire und Yvan konnten nicht miteinander, aber auch nicht ohne einander leben. Immer wieder trennten, betrogen und vertrugen sie sich und schrieben einander ein Leben lang Briefe, die von großer Poesie und geradezu verrückter Leidenschaftlichkeit waren. Auf diesem Hörbuch liegt eine Auswahl an Briefen und Dokumenten aus 30 Jahren vor, die die hochemotionale Beziehung dieser beiden Künstler eindrucksvoll reflektieren. Die Schauspieler Sandra Quadflieg und Ulrich Tukur erwecken mit ihren Stimmen eine Amour fou zu neuem Leben, die ihren literarischen Ausdruck in einem Briefwechsel fand, der zum Ergreifendsten gehört, was dieses Genre je hervorgebracht hat

Viele Jahre später wird beider Leben verfilmt.

Über seinen Schwager Hans gelangt er in die Widerstandsgruppe innerhalb der deutschen Spionageabwehr, deren Ziel die Bekämpfung des Naziregimes ist mit allen Mitteln politischer und militärischer Konspiration. Das >heilige, christliche Leben<, das er sich einmal vorgenommen hatte, ist das nicht. Der Bekenner wird zum Verschwörer, wäre selbst zum Attentat auf Hitler bereit. Dietrich Bonhoeffer lernt Maria von Wedemeyer kennen und lieben, doch noch vor der offiziellen Verlobung wird er von der Gestapo verhaftet. Die Chance zur Flucht schlägt er aus. Die Freiheit sollte er nicht mehr sehen ... >BONHOEFFER - DIE LETZTE STUFE zeigt, wie man sich als Mensch in einer unerhörten Situation verhalten kann und verhalten sollte. Denn darin ist Bonhoeffer beispielgebend.< Ulrich Tukur im Gespräch mit Oliver Vorwald, Welt am Sonntag vom 16.4.2000
