Great Freedom

Feature Film

Great Freedom (AT) tells the life story of Hans Hoffmann in several interwoven time periods. Hans is twenty when he is imprisoned for the first time because of his homosexuality. Protective custody. Auschwitz concentration camp. At the end of the war, all prisoners are released from the concentration camps. All of them? No, Hans is transferred directly to prison. Paragraph 175, in force since 1872 and tightened in 1935, continues to apply, and the Allies do not doubt it either.
