Ms. von Trotta talks about the history of Aryan wives during the Third Reich who protested against their Jewish husbands' imminent deportation and how this story inspired her to make the film.
In 1943, Jewish husbands of Aryan wives in Berlin were finally rounded up by the Nazis who intended for them to suffer the same fate as other Jews. The men were gathered at a detention center on Rosenstrasse to await their fate. The women gathered day after day, demanding that their husbands be set free. A dramatic and tense situation told in reflection.
