Veit Harlan

Frank Noack

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter deals with the second trial conducted against Harlan after the prosecution insisted on a revision. When he is acquitted for a second time, Senator Erich Lüth becomes Germany’s most visible anti-Harlan activist, urging Germans to boycott his films. For this, in turn, he becomes the object of a lawsuit initiated by the production company of Harlan’s first postwar film, which has been presold to several foreign countries, just as some of his prewar films are reissued with profit. One organization collects money to finance Harlan’s immigration to South America. Harlan’s daughters, Maria and Susanne, marry and have children with the sons of Holocaust victims. In letters, Harlan pleads guilty of cowardice and opportunism but still insists on continuing making films.

Keywords:   acquittal, boycott, lawsuit, marriage to Holocaust victims, open letters, presold films, reissued films, revision, second Harlan trial
