Holocaust survivor Anita Lasker-Wallfisch with DW director Christian Berger

A year in the making, this documentary lifts the lid on how the "Third Reich" used music in concentration camps as a political tool in the service of the Nazi regime.

As well as interviews with relatives of Lasker-Wallfisch and Furtwängler, there are insights from historians, authors and musicians into the history of music in the Nazi era. The film (1x84') also features first-time colorized scenes of Hitler backstage at the Bayreuth Festival Theater Furtwängler as well as a black-and-white footage and a BBC audio recording of Lasker-Wallfisch shortly after the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.

XIMEI - China's AIDS Scandal 

Factual | November 30

DW-Sendung Dokumentation Ximei - Chinas großer AIDS-Skandal

Hundreds in Henan were infected through tainted blood transfusions

Ximei, a young farmer in China, reveals her experience of AIDS and opens conversations about everything from isolation in one of the country's so-called "AIDS villages" to the government's attempt to cover up its responsibility for HIV cases. Ximei talks about how she and hundreds of AIDS patients in the Chinese province of Henan, were denied affordable medication and social welfare payments. This award-winning film produced by Chinese artist and activist Ai Wei Wie feels like it's been a long time coming. Most shockingly, it exposes how a campaign by the Chinese government has triggered a home-grown AIDS epidemic that led to some 300,000 donors and recipients becoming infected with HIV. See feature November 30.
