About this Item

Berlin, ADN-Zentralbild, 1981. Original photograph, silver print, 16 x 24 cm. Erwin Geschonneck (December 27, 1906 - March 12, 2008) was a German actor. His biggest success occurred in the German Democratic Republic, where he was considered one of the most famous actors of the time. - Geschonneck was born in Bartenstein, East Prussia (now Bartoszyce, Poland), the son of a poor shoemaker. The family moved to Berlin in 1909 so his father could work as a nightwatchman. In 1919, the younger Geschonneck joined the Communist Party of Germany. After the Nazi takeover in 1933, he emigrated to the Soviet Union via Poland, but was expelled in 1938 and moved to Prague. After the German occupation of Bohemia and Moravia, he was arrested on March 31st, 1939. During the war, he was imprisoned in several concentration camps. In 1945, Geschonneck was one of the few prisoners who survived the RAF sinking of the Cap Arcona. - Immediately following the war, Geschonneck acted in theaters in Hamburg, Germany, and made his film debut in 1947 in In jenen Tagen. He subsequently moved to East Germany, worked with Bertolt Brecht, and became a successful actor. The German movie "Jacob, the Liar" by Frank Beyer was nominated for Best foreign language film at the Academy Awards in 1975 - the only one nomination for G.D.R. In December of 2006, he turned 100. His last movie, made in 1995 for the German television network ARD, was "Matulla und Busch", where he played alongside veteran actor Fred Delmare. Geschonneck's son, Matti Geschonneck, directed. - Geschonneck died in Berlin on March 12, 2008, aged 101. - ANNEMONE HAASE (13. November 1930 in Breslau) ist eine deutsche Schauspielerin. - Annemone Haase begann ihre Karriere 1949. Zehn Jahre arbeitete sie an den verschiedensten Theatern in Annaberg, Görlitz und Erfurt. - 1959 wurde sie an das Berliner Ensemble engagiert und blieb dort 42 Jahre lang, also bis zum Jahr 2001.
