Thanks Ade, sounds interesting. I thought that it must be based on the book "A woman in Berlin". I shall have to try and borrow a copy of the film, or rent it perhaps.
The book is an interesting read by the way, a good insight as to life in Berlin as the Red Army swept through. Another good book to read, also a true account of the battle, is "Berlin - Dance of death" by Helmut Altner.
By the way Dance of Death has a strange meaning in Berlin.
“Berlin … Your Dance Partner Is Death”
Can anyone refresh my memory? Was it something to do with civil unrest in the post WW1 era. Images of Death dancing with someone would be painted around the city, or appear on posters. Perhaps some kind of underground movement opposed to what was happening in Berlin at the time. I can not recall properly
