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

Download PDF for this date

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.”
