From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wolfgang Liebeneiner (6 October 1905 - 28 November 1987) was a German actor and film and theater director.

In 1928, he was taught by Otto Falckenberg, the director of the Munich Kammerspiele, in acting and directing. In 1936, Liebeneiner became a member of the Prussian State Theater of Berlin (Preußisches Staatstheater Berlin) and in 1938, he became artistic director of the German Film Academy Babelsberg (Deutsche Filmakademie Babelsberg). In 1941, he directed the film Ich klage an (I accuse) in cooperation with the National Socialist ministry of propaganda. The film was about voluntary Euthanasia of a woman suffering from multiple sclerosis, but was intended to support the T-4 Euthanasia Program. He received a doctorate in the years from 1942 to 1945 while working for Universum Film AG, the largest German film studio at that time.

In 1947, Wolfgang Liebeneiner directed the debut of Wolfgang Borchert's play Draußen vor der Tür in the Hamburger Kammerspiele.

Liebeneiner was married twice: first, from 1934 to the actress Ruth Hellberg, then from 1944 to the actress Hilde Krahl, with whom he had his daughter Johanna Liebeneiner, who also became a famous actress.

He died on 28 November 1987 in Vienna after a long illness.
