After all, the Furtwnglers have produced an outstanding archaeologist and cornucopia musician, as well as an actor, engineer, and film director. At the moment she considers it a responsibility and a challenge to be a part of this dynasty. The family principle seems to be “always and always better.”

We accompany Maria Furtwingler in her daily life between acting, charitable work, and political activism. Screenwriter Jobst Nij reports on one of Germany’s most provocative dynasties.

They have both grown up and will soon take over their father’s publishing house. Hubert Burda once wished his children would inherit the family business at the age of 27. But now nothing happens.

She exposed them to the effects of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Together with German doctors, local aid organizations, and her mother, she founded the Malissa Foundation in 2016.
