Fateless is a deeply moving tale of a Hungarian Jewish boy and his quest for the meaning of his past. It screened in Official Selection at Berlin, 2005. Based on the 2002 Nobel prize-winning novel by Imre Kertesz, Fateless chronicles the attempts of 14-year-old Gyuri Koves to reconcile the unimaginable horror of having been incarcerated in German concentration camps. On his return to Budapest Gyuri finds those around him treat him with indifference. His friends and neighbours encourage him to put the past behind him, while an intellectual sympathetic to the personal and political terror of his past repeatedly refers to the camps as "the lowest circle of Hell". Gyuri finds neither comfort nor meaning in these clichés

Die Thomaner : a year in the life of the St. Thomas Boys Choir Leipzig ( visu )
2 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 107 libraries worldwide
In 2012 the St. Thomas Boys Choir Leipzig celebrated its 800th birthday. An almost unbelievable period of time, if one considers that the choir outlasted all political systems, maintaining its unbroken traditions over the centuries, and was thus able to hold onto established principles such as the inclusion of the elder boys in the education of the younger ones. The film accompanied the St. Thomas Boys Choir and their choir master Georg Christoph Biller over the period of one year, immersing the audience in a unique world between motet, boarding school and football pitch, into a life that is distinguished by success and pressure to perform, doubts and pride, homesickness and genuine friendship

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 56 libraries worldwide
Vladimir Putin, after eight years as President of Russia and four more as Prime Minister, is stubbornly holding onto power. He has announced his intention to return as President and declared his party the winner in parliamentary elections that are widely seen as fraudulent. In December, tens of thousands took to the streets in Moscow in the largest protests since Putin came to power. Putin began his career as a KGB officer, but when he became President, he made himself a valued ally of the West. How did he do it? And where did things go wrong with Washington and London? For the first time Putin's top colleagues--and the Western statesmen who eventually clashed with him--tell the inside story of one of the world's most powerful men. -- container
