  • Kathe Kollwitz: Images of a Life, 95 min, GDR, 1987, German with English subtitles

    Director: Ralf Kirsten

    Kathe Kollwitz was 47 years old and already a well-established artist in Germany and abroad when her youngest son Peter volunteered to fight in World War I, and was killed two weeks later. This film pieces parts of Kollwitz's letters and diaries together in a mosaic-like self-portrait in the aftermath of this painful tragedy. Introduced by Dr. Skyler Arndt-Briggs, Executive Director, DEFA Film Library at UMass Amherst.
