Habermann + Q&A with director Juraj Herz

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.
