Die mörder sind unter uns = The murderers are among us by Wolfgang Staudte( Visual )

The first film to be produced in postwar Germany. Wolfgang Staudte's narrative focuses on Dr. Hans Mertens, a former officer in the German army who has been severely traumatized by the atrocities perpetrated by his superiors. Tormented by his conscience, Mertens wanders through a Germany ruined by the privations of World War II. Returning to Berlin, he finds that his former SS commander has successfully transformed himself into a wealthy industrialist, apparently untroubled by his role in the holocaust. Dr. Mertens, takes it upon himself to administer justice to his former commanding officer, who he knows to be guilty of war crimes. This was the first and perhaps the best of the so-called 'Trummerfilme', films from the rubble. It was also the first film from DEFA, the East German production company founded in 1946

The Murderers are Among Us (Die Mörder sind unter uns)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1945, after three years in a concentration camp, the artist Susanne Wallner (Hildegard Knef) returns to a Berlin in ruins. Shot in the rubble of Berlin just a year after WWII, The Murderers Are among Us was the first film made in Germany after the war and has since become a classic antifascist and rubble film. Its film noir style successfully blends German expressionism with striking neorealism. Despite Susanne's unspeakable experiences, she is filled with a renewed desire for life. When she goes back to her old apartment, she learns Dr. Hans Mertens (Ernst Wilhelm Borchert) has taken up residence there. He is a physician and a former officer in the German army, who is haunted by the memory of the execution of 121 Polish civilians, which he did nothing to prevent. Under Susanne's care, the broken man gathers new strength and courage. Then, by chance, Mertens meets his former captain and decides to take the law into his own hands
