Artur "Atze" Brauner (born Abraham Brauner; 1 August 1918 – 7 July 2019) was a Polish-born German movie producer and entrepreneur. He created over 300 movies from 1946 through 2019. He was Jewish and many of his relatives were killed by Nazis in the 1940s.
Brauner produced Sag' die Wahrheit, one of the first movies produced in Germany after World War II. He also produced Morituri, but received negative reviews and failed at the box office. He began to work with German Hollywood-based producers such as Robert Siodmak and later Fritz Lang who started a revival of Dr. Mabuse.
Some of his movies dealt with the Holocaust such as Die Weiße Rose, The Plot to Assassinate Hitler (Der 20. Juli) and Man and Beast (Mensch und Bestie).
Brauner died on 7 July 2019 in Berlin at the age of 100.
