Leben für Leben - Maximilian Kolbe( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit Oscar-Preisträger Christoph Waltz in einer seinen frühen Rollen. Dem jungen Schlesier Jan gelingt im Juli 1941 eine gewagte aber unerwartete Flucht aus dem KZ Auschwitz. Lagerkommandant Fritsch verurteilt daraufhin als Racheakt für den Entflohenen zehn Häftlinge zum Tod im Hungerbunker. Als einer von ihnen, ein Familienvater, unter diesem Todesurteil um Gnade fleht und zusammenbricht, gibt stellvertretend Maximilian Kolbe für ihn sein Leben und stirbt dessen Hungertod. Fortan ist Jan nicht nur vor der Gestapo auf der Flucht, sondern auch vor seiner Schuld, seiner Verstrickung in Kolbes Tod. Neben dieser Figur taucht eine andere auf: Bruder Anselm, ein junger Franziskanerpater, der ruhig und unbeirrbar die Seligsprechung Kolbes durch Papst Paul VI. vorantreibt. So ergründen er und Jan gegen Ende des Krieges und noch viele Jahre danach Kolbes Motive unter völlig verschiedenen Auffassungen
Life for life : Maximilian Kolbe( Visual )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in Polish and held by 90 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 Father 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"

Der Gott des Gemetzels by Roman Polanski( Visual )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 44 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)
