In memoriam Oswalt Kolle

On September 24. of this year Oswalt Kolle died, he was the most famous figure of post-war sexual education in Germany. His pioneering efforts, an honest effort to free sexuality from constraining bonds imposed on it by religious dogmatism and prejudiced short sightedness, mark the importance of his work.

Although the films he produced must seem comedic at best seen from a today's viewpoint, they shaped the way sex got portrayed in German movies.
