Motion Picture House in Frankfurt Withdraws Showing of “immortal Beloved”

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The owner of the motion picture house here which announced the showing of “Immortal Beloved” — the film produced by Veit Harlan who directed the notorious anti-Semitic film “Jud Suess” during the Nazi regime — today withdrew the announcement and said that the film will not be shown in his theatre.

The Coordinating Council of the Society for Christian-Jewish Cooperation, at its meeting here, adopted a resolution thanking Erich Lueth, the head of the Government Press Office in Hamburg, for his “unflinching fight against the reappearance of Veit Parlan.”
