Wealthy mill owner August Habermann is a well respected German entrepreneur with no interest in politics or the growing nationalism. However when the German army invades his town in Sudetenland, he is forced to compromise in a futile attempt to protect his partly Jewish wife and his employees, setting off a chain of violent events. Based on an actual story depicted in a novel by Josef Urban, the film addresses the taboo subject of the atrocities during the so called "wild transfer" of Czechoslovakia's German population immediately after WWII.

Directed by Juraj Herz, Austria/CZ/Germany 2010, 104’, in German with English subtitles

This screening is a part of Made in Prague, Film & Literature Festival, 10 – 27 November and the UK Jewish Film Festival, 1-20 November 2011. More info on www.czechcentre.org.uk
