I just discovered that after the war, the french and British and American allies ,as well as the survivors of the concentration camp,did not follow the ethical treatment of p.o.w. and took the law into their own hand and committed violent revenge against many Germans,which cause another holocaust .So I don't know how the motion picture business was able to rise up that year,in Germany in 1947.This was the first film since the war, or what the info claims,I though it was,"Murderers amongst us.This is a Rubble film. A few boys ,who are living in a country school,who's parents sent them to protect them from the violent bombings.well .They want to leave school and participate against the Americans and french and Germans and Russians .The four boys, Wolfgang,played by Lutz Moik,Manfred ,played by Hans Neie,Max ,played by Horst Gentzen and the youngest Ulli ,played by Dieter Bauer.Wolf gang remembers one of the teachers and then all decide to leave to go back to Berlin and fight ,Paul Dahlke ,plays the peaceful teacher and when he discovers they are gone try to search for them.Kathe Haak plays Wolfgang mother ,This movie contains actual footage of the bombings and fighting in Berlin ,when citizens did not give up yet .Wolf gang finally meets the teacher that encouraging him to support the Nazis and he gives him his old military coat .On their way to Berlin they observe people escaping from the bombed cities.They are confronted by a dead mother and her daughter on the side of the road.Eventually they meet Corporal Gehlhorn, played by Will Rose.He decide to join them to make sure the kids get to Berlin.The problem is that when the youngest Ulli,played by Deiter Bauer,as every one goes on the side of the road to hide behind a wall as the bombs hit that Area,Ulli goes on the middle of the road to get his dog ,then after another bomb attack kills him.Paul Dahlke is confronting the teacher for encouraging the kid to fight .Wolfgang realizes how dangerous war is and decide snot to fight.Will then send him t his mother .This was an good rubble film,with actual documentary film footage.The only problem is that the film don't show the other kids being turned to their parents.Probably budget,may be. 06/4/14 Correction it was 5 boys, Erich ,played by Gunther Seehaus.The other teacher Wolfgang knew was Paulke, played by Kurt Langake,Paul had a friend and a fellow teacher Hoefert,played by Helmut Heyne. 06/5/14
