Frank Beyer
Birth: 1932
Death: Oct. 1, 2006

Film Director. Born in Nobitz Germany, he was East Germany's most renowned filmmaker, noted for his Holocaust dramas. He is best known for his Warsaw Ghetto drama "Jacob the Liar" (1975). The only East German film to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, it was remade in 1999, starring Robin Williams. His other films include "Two Mothers" (1957), "Naked Among Wolves" (1963) and "Traces of Stones" (1965), which was banned in theatres for its critical look at living and working conditions in the Stalinist state. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, he made his last film, "Nikolaikirche" about the downfall of the communist system. In 1991 he was awarded the German Film Prize for his life's work. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
