German Theater of Protest [electronic resource]: 1918-1938, the Art of Expressionism

Loading...
"German theater of the years between the two world wars, often considered part of the European "Expressionist" movement, was, in its most inventive aspects, a theater of opposition. It was a theater of protest against the values of the society that had prosecuted World War One, against bourgeois smugness, and then against the Germans' acceptance of the authoritatianism of National Socialism. The plays from which scenes are presented here are "Gas" by Georg Kaiser, "Hoopla! Such is Life!" by Ernst Toller, and "The Private Life of the Master Race" by Bertolt Brecht."--Container.

Visions of Germany: Bavaria

Loading...
"Showcases the diversity of Germany's southeastern region - from the old world charm of castles, fortresses and gardens to the Mediterranean flair of the Bodensee, the "German Riviera;" from the depths of King Ludwig's madness revealed in fantastic castles like Schloss Neuschwanstein to the drama of Germany's highest peak at Zugspitze. Stunning aerial visuals are set to a soundtrack of local compositions - folk tunes one might hear in the bier gartens as well as the classical incarnations of the region like Johann Strauss' Blue Danube Waltz - paired with enough narration to inform but not intrude on the experience."--Container.

Hitler's Search for the Holy Grail

"Explores how history was used as a political tool and how the theories of the Nazi historical department provided the ideology used by the SS (Schutzstaffel-- "protection squadron") to justify genocide. The program outlines how the racialist theories of the SS were drawn from archaeology, myth and legend, as well as selected history. Nazi ideas about "Aryans" and the "master race" came out of historical and ethnic fantasies in which legends such as the Holy Grail and the lost city of Atlantis-- supposed to be a home of the Aryan race-- played their part.."--Www. pbs. org.

Germany Today

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "This is the story of a people desolate in defeat, who found the way back with the help of the military force that defeated them. This is the story of the role played by the United States Army in the rebirth of West Germany. "Germany Today" is an documentary of a vast reconstruction job. A cycle has come full turn. The Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces which helped defeat Germany is hailed now by free Germans as friend and protector. No other force in military history has done so much to put a conquered nation back on its feet as the United States Army. Because the U.S. Army has been a bulwark, West Germany remains democratic -- a front line for this nation's security. As the film concludes, the narrator says, ' [...]

You could say it's the story of two families and of their effects on one another, or it might be called the story of a soldier and a girl, which is certainly not unusual. What gives today's Big Picture its distinction as the portrayal of our army as it fulfills its functions in the Cold War, helping to maintain the fragile peace through might, and strengthening the bonds of friendship among the free nations of the world through kindness."--Transcript.

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.
