Martha Liebermann: A Stolen Life (Martha Liebermann – Ein gestohlenes Leben)

Houston Jewish Film Festival

Set in Berlin, this gripping biopic follows Martha Liebermann, an upper-class widow who could never have imagined having to leave her beloved homeland at the age of 85. As a German Jew in 1943, however, her only choice is to go abroad or wait to be deported to a concentration camp. For now, the reputation and valuable pictures by her world-famous artist husband Max Liebermann still give her protection. Martha’s friends pressure her into an illegal sale to finance her escape with a resistance group. But the Gestapo sees an opportunity to set a trap for the courageous opponents of the regime.


Generous support for this film festival has been provided by Isabelle and Eric Mayer and Lois and George Stark.
