The character of Simon Goldberg was based on diarist and professor Victor Klemperer. See more »

Goofs

Simon Goldberg, the Jewish character based on the historical Viktor Klemperer, lives with his non-Jewish wife in an apartment that they have for their own. By early 1945, the real Viktor Klemperer, a Jew who had converted to Protestantism, lived with his non-Jewish wife Eva perched in a so-called "Judenhaus," a house where numerous Jewish families had been put up and kept with only basic provisions. For years, families like that of Viktor Klemperer had been isolated from the non-Jewish German population, and it would have been unthinkable for the wife of a Jewish German to work at a hospital.

great movie who made you understand history
11 March 2006 | by (Germany, Landsberg Lech) – See all my reviews

I think a documentary about the bombing of Dresden would not have had the same effect. When you are taken along in a story and you start to identify with the people involved the impact of the Dresden bombardment makes you understand and you sure will remember it. I did not like the fact that the movie was totally in German on TV - well why had they chosen English actors for the English roles then. But I was very happy with the DVD now as here I got what I had expected and which made the whole movie more real. The English really spoke English and the English pilot had the English accent when speaking his role. I have seen Dresden in 1992 and I have seen it today with the newly built church. But born in 1970 I had not much of an idea of what really had happened during WW II there. This movie made me understand. And I really liked that it showed both sides - The German and The English.
