    Schüren Verlag: Lebensläufe – Die Kinder von Golzow 2008

    By Ron Holloway | December 31, 2008

    Class Danielson, director of the 51st Leipzig International Festival for Documentary and Animation Film (27 October to 2 November 2008), paid homage to Barbara and Winfried Junge. Their Die Kinder von Golzow (The Children of Golzow) recently completed its run as the longest documentary cycle in the history of cinema, from Wenn ich erst zur Schule geh’ (When I First went to School) in 1961 to …dann leben sie noch heute: Die Kinder von Golzow, das Ende der unendlichen Geschichte (…Then They Are Living Happily Ever After: The Children of Golzow, The End of the Neverending Story) in 2008. The story of this splendid accomplishment is chronicled in Lebensläufe – Die Kinder von Golzow (Paths of Life – The Children of Golzow) (Marburg: Shüren Verlag, 2004, 328 pp, photos), edited by Dieter Wolf, with contributions by Günther Rücker and Karl Gass and editorial assistance by Ralf Schenk. Better still, pay a visit to the Golzow Museum in this friendly town near the Polish border. Once again, congratulations!
