DEFA Film Library web site, viewed Aug. 24, 2018 (Peter Voigt was born in Dessau, Germany, on May 26, 1933, and spent his childhood in occupied Poland until 1945. [...] After graduating from high school in 1952, Voigt worked as an assistant stage designer at the Städtische Bühnen in Leipzig and, in April 1954, joined the Berliner Ensemble as Bertolt Brecht's youngest assistant. [...] In 1959, inspired by the Czech animation master, puppet maker and illustrator Jiří Trnka, Voigt became an illustrator and co-director at the newly-founded DEFA Studio for Animation Film in Dresden. [...] In 1983, Peter Voigt joined the DEFA Studio for Documentary Film, where he directed stylistically unconventional films until the studio closed in 1990. [...] As of 1990, Voigt started working as a freelance director and made some of his most important films, many of which focused on artists. [...] Peter Voigt returned to Brecht one more time in Brechts Regal. The film focuses on Brecht's personal book collection, particularly on the handwritten notes in his books. Unfortunately, this film was not finished, as Peter Voigt passed away before it was done, on March 12, 2015)
