"... the first major antiwar film to come out of Germany after World War II, as well as the nation's first postwar film to be widely shown internationally, even securing an Oscar nomination. Set near the end of the conflict, it follows a group of teenage boys in a small town as they contend with everyday matters like school, girls, and parents, before enlisting as soldiers and being forced to defend their home turf in a confused, terrifying battle. This expressively shot, emotionally bruising drama dared to humanize young German soldiers at a historically tender moment"--Container

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. Maria Schell, an actress particularly well-known for her melodramatic roles, portrays with great sensitivity the conflicts of a doctor trapped 'between two fronts'

Es geschah am 20. Juli( Visual )

10 editions published between 1955 and 2009 in German and held by 35 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
