Rosenstrasse by Margarethe von Trotta( visu )
47 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 950 libraries worldwide
In the cold Berlin winter of 1943, hundreds of women stood, and waited, in defiance of the Nazis. While countless Jews were being sent to concentration camps for execution, Jewish husbands of Aryan wives suffered a different fate; they were separated from their families and imprisoned in a factory on a street named Rosenstrasse. On that street these women stood in protest, in the name of love until they were reunited with their men. This is the striking story of Rosenstrasse: where the power of the human will stands inconquerable - for hope, dignity and love
Hannah Arendt by Margarethe von Trotta( visu )
17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 682 libraries worldwide
A brilliant biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker, controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils, introduced her now-famous concept of the 'Banality of Evil.' Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into dramatic cinema

Rosa Luxemburg by Margarethe von Trotta( visu )
37 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 424 libraries worldwide
This portrait of Rosa Luxemburg traces the personal and public life of the leftist leader, popularly known as "Red Rosa." Luxemburg was closely involved in the major movements of 20th-century radicalism, including the rise of socialism and labor unions, the 1905 Revolution, pacifist opposition to World War I, and the ill-fated German Spartacist uprising of 1918. Director Margarethe von Trotta captures this turbulent period in European history during which Rosa battles the reactionary establishment and the timidity of her political comrades, engages in stormy love affairs and suffers frequent incarcerations. The film concludes with her murder at the hands of right-wing German militarists. (Circulates)
