Content

Just as the Federal Republic of Germany went uphill, German entertainment television developed so splendidly. And the showmasters took part in forgetting the war and its traumatic events: Kulenkampff, Hans Rosenthal and Peter Alexander. All three fell into the turmoil during the war, Kulenkampff and Alexander as soldiers, Rosenthal as a Jew, who, with unbelievably luck, narrowly escaped deportation several times. Like the director’s father, they belonged to a very special generation: First marked by National Socialism, then harnessed to the hamster wheel of reconstruction, they knew nothing of traumatization, or did not want to know.

Ein Dokumentarfilm von Regina Schilling

So wie es mit der BRD in den 50er Jahren bergauf ging, so prächtig entwickelte sich das deutsche Unterhaltungs-Fernsehen. Den Krieg und seine traumatischen Ereignisse zu vergessen, dazu waren die Showmaster angetreten: Kulenkampff, Hans Rosenthal und Peter Alexander. Erst gezeichnet vom Nationalsozialismus, dann eingespannt in das Hamsterrad des Wiederaufbaus, der von Traumatisierungen nichts wusste – oder nichts wissen wollte.
