The story of Helga, a young German doctor, who is stationed at a field hospital in the Balkans during World War II. One day, she is kidnapped by Yugoslavian partisans, and though she first tries to escape, her duty as a doctor makes her stay. Then typhoid breaks out in the partisans' camp, and Helga smuggles the much-needed medication out of the German field hospital. The bridge which separates the enemy camps becomes a poignant symbol for the senselessness of the war.

Es geschah am 20. Juli ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1955 and 2004 in German and Undetermined and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the true saga of the anti-Hitler German Army officers' bomb plot of July 20, 1944 that almost killed Nazi Führer Adolf Hitler, and thus very nearly changed the course of World War II...[In contrast to the reasons behind the plot given in the 2008 Hollywood feature Valkyrie, this film] reveals instead that it was to stop the loss of German lives and the destruction of Germany, and also not to continue the war to a successful conclusion. Thus, it is a more historically accurate film...Much of the dialogue is lifted straight from historical records." -- Container
