On behalf of the PROVOBIS GmbH, Berlin

“The Ninth Day” is a German-Luxembourgian production of PROVOBIS FILM, Jürgen Haase and Videopress, in co-production with the Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Broadcasting) and Arte. The film premiered in Germany in November 2004.

The script by Eberhard Görner and Andreas Pflüger is based on the autobiographical report by Jean Bernard entitled “Pfarrerblock 25487”. Therein, Jean Bernard describes in diary form his experiences during his imprisonment in the concentration camp Dachau, near Munich, from May 1941 to August 1942. Facts & Files, commissioned by PROVOBIS GmbH, Berlin, researched material for individual scenes, checked facts, and wrote a statement about the script from the historical point of view.
