Inhalt


Different from the Others

Violin virtuoso Paul Körner promotes the musical talent of young Kurt Sivers whose parents observe the infatuated relationship between Paul and Kurt with distrust. Then, the criminal Bollek extorts Körner because of his homosexuality. Finally, Körner reports the extortionist to the police while the criminal in revenge files charges against Körner because of article 175. In a flashback, Körner tells Else, Kurt’s sympathetic sister, about his development and they both attend a lecture of medical consultant Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld about the scientific backgrounds of homosexuality. At court, the extortionist is sent to prison but Körner is also sentenced to go to prison for one week because of the prevailing legal situation. Ostracized by everyone around him, Körner commits suicide.
