Berlin in June of 1940. While Nazi propaganda celebrates the regime’s victory over France, a kitchen-cum-living room in Prenzlauer Berg is filled with grief. Anna and Otto Quangel’s son has been killed at the front. This working class couple had long believed in the ‘Führer’ and followed him willingly, but now they realise that his promises are nothing but lies and deceit. They begin writing postcards as a form of resistance and in a bid to raise awareness: Stop the war machine! Kill Hitler! Putting their lives at risk, they distribute these cards in the entrances of tenement buildings and in stairwells. But the SS and the Gestapo are soon onto them, and even their neighbours pose a threat.

Germany German (Deutsch)

Jeder stirbt für sich allein

Im Berlin des Jahres 1940 lebt ein ganzes Land in einem Haus: Die Bewohner in der Jablonskistraße 55 bilden einen Querschnitt der Bevölkerung: Ein Blockwart wohnt dort, eine versteckte Jüdin, ein Ex-Richter, ein Denunziant, ein Kleinkrimineller, ein Hitlerjunge, eine Briefträgerin und das Arbeiterehepaar Anna und Otto Quangel.

France French (Français)

Seul dans Berlin

Berlin, 1940. Après la capitulation de la France, Adolf Hitler est au sommet du pouvoir. Le couple ouvrier Anna et Otto Quangel habitent dans un quartier modeste. Leurs voisins sont des fervents nazis, des juifs, des sympathisants du régime, des intellectuels : un échantillon de la société allemande de l’époque. Un jour de juin, la vie des Quangel bascule brutalement. Hans Quangel, le fils unique du couple, est un de ces jeunes hommes sacrifiés qui meurent au front. Avec sa disparition disparaît aussi l'unique raison de vivre que les Quangel avaient encore. Anna et Otto ne sont pas des résistants, ce sont des parents qui ont perdu leur enfant.

Lettere da Berlino

Berlino 1940. La città è paralizzata dalla paura. Otto e Anna Quangel sono una coppia appartenente alla classe operaia che vive in un appartamento malmesso e che, come tutti, cerca di stare alla larga dai guai durante la dominazione nazista. Quando il loro unico figlio viene ucciso al fronte, la perdita spinge Otto e Anna a compiere uno straordinario atto di resistenza e rivolta. Iniziano così a diffondere per tutta la città cartoline anonime contro il regime di Hitler, con il rischio concreto di essere scoperti e giustiziati.Presto la loro campagna antinazista richiama l'attenzione dell'ispettore della Gestapo Escherich e inizia una spietata caccia all’uomo. Nella loro ribellione silenziosa ma decisa, i Quangel riescono a sfidare il regime spietato e dispotico di Hitler con la sola forza delle parole.
