Dividing Bar

Excellent movie, the first film adaptation of Stefan Zweig's novella, long before Andrew Birkin's Burning Secret. Goebbels banned it, partly because Zweig and the film director, Richard Siodmak, were Jewish, and partly because the film's title could have been seen as a reference to the Reichstag fire. Siodmak then left Germany to continue his career in France. Hans Joachim Schaufuß was killed in action on the Eastern Front, aged twenty-two.
