The Sixth form German Society met again this week after school to watch an Oscar winning German film called ‘Das Leben der Anderen’ (‘The Lives of Others’). In 1984 East Berlin, an agent of the secret police, conducting surveillance on a writer and his lover, finds himself becoming increasingly absorbed by their lives. Our German students thoroughly enjoyed the film and would highly recommend watching it. It has given them a deeper understanding of what life was like in East Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall and they really engaged with the characters.
