Post WWII Drama, HABERMANN arrives on DVD and Digital December 8, 2020 from Corinth FilmsBased on true events, HABERMANN, from director Juraj Herz, is the first film to dramatize the brutal expulsion of 3 million Germans from Czechoslovakia. It resulted in the deaths of thousands of German civilians, and is still met with great controversy today.

This powerful drama from Corinth Films follows the life of August Habermann (Mark Waschke), a well-respected, wealthy German sawmill owner living in the Czech Sudentenland. Married to the young, beautiful Czech, Jana (Hanna Herzsprung), their comfortable lives undergo increased tension when the region is annexed by Nazi Germany in 1938. And though heís neither interested in politics nor ideology, for Habermann, the annexation signals the first of many encounters with ruthless SS officer, Major Koslowski (Ben Becker).

When two German soldiers are found murdered, and Koslowski discovers Jana was born half-Jewish, he seizes the opportunity to extort the kind-hearted mill owner. He informs Habermann that he intends to execute townspeople to avenge the deaths of his two soldiers, and instructs him to select which ones should die. If he doesnít, the Major will deport Jana to a concentration camp. As the Soviets finally advance into the region, Koslowski arranges his escape and his troops retreat, but the German population stays -- the region has been their home for generations.

After 7 years of Nazi occupation, however, Czechs yearns for vengeance and blame all Germans for the daily terrors and indignities they faced and set out to expel them from the region. Those who chose to remain could face deadly consequences, and Habermannís life is especially in danger since many think he is responsible for the Czechs executed by Koslowski. Having lost his family and many others he cared about, Habermann resigns himself to whatever awaits him in this German-Czechoslovakian historical drama nominated for six Czech Lions, including Best Film.
