Die Zärtlichkeit der Wölfe

AKA: Tenderness of the Wolves

Country: West Germany

Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama, Horror



A homosexual serial killer in Weimar Germany murders boys between the ages of 13 and 18, butchers the remains, and sells the meat to his acquiantances - or even serves up the remains as dinner to his circle of friends. Nice!


  • Produced by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1945-1982)
  • Based on the real-life crimes of German serial killer Fritz Haarmann (1879-1925), who murdered a minimum of 24 boys between 1918 and 1924 in Hanover, Germany. He was variously known as the Wolf-Man, the Butcher of Hanover, and the Vampire of Hanover - the last sobriquet deriving from his penchant for dispatching his victims by biting into their throats.
