On the Run with Books

Mit Büchern auf der Flucht

What do you take with you when you suddenly have to emigrate to a foreign country? For the many Jews who succeeded in fleeing Germany and Austria in the 1930s, the answer to this question was clear: books. It could have been a stout pair of shoes, a good jacket or other practical items, but many Jewish emigrants chose German language cultural and intellectual history instead: Goethe, Schiller, Heine, Schnitzler, Rilke and of course Theodor Herzl. This film traces what happened to the people and their books right up to the present day.
