However actually the bombing stopped after the declaration of piece in Tiflis, which was ordered by Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III.

Quotes

Bürgermeister Nettelbeck: [after Gneisenau asks Nettelbeck to surrender] You weren't born in Kolberg, Gneisenau. You are put here to Kolberg. But we grew up here. We know every stone, every corner every house here. We don't let go. Even if we have to claw in the ground of our city with our nails, we don't let go. First they have to cut off each of our hands or kill us one after the other. Gneisenau, you can't put the whole disgrace on an old man like me. and to give our city to Napoleon.

Interesting Film
4 March 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

To correct one thing the first critic said, KOLBERG was released on January 31, 1945. But it's release came to late to increase the morals of the Wehrmacht, because at the end of Janauary things went not so well for the German Army, because the Red Army reached the Oder, some 60 km near Berlin. Furthermore the powers of the Wehrmacht were nearly exhausted, due to the loss of arms and men. So it was clear to see for the most, that we would loose the war, unless the promised Wunderwaffen would not come to action. And that never happened. Nevertheless KOLBERG is an interesting experience. Alt last I'd like to point out HEINRICH GEORGE, who truly was one of our greatest Actors in Theatre and Film ever, in his role of the Bürgermeister of Kolberg. A stunning performance.
