Storyline

Based on the memories of Marga Spiegel. In her narrative, published in 1965, she describes how courageous farmers in southern Munsterland hid her, her husband Siegfried and their little daughter Karin from 1943 until 1945, thus saving them from deportation to the extermination camps in the East.. Without reservation, the farmers offer the refugees their protection. That this turns them into heroes would never occur to them. They are used to weathering even dangerous situations somehow, guided only by their instinct and century-old code of ethics. They risk their own lives, and, if necessary, even that of their families. There is never a discussion about friendship, reliability, humanity. Written by Menemsha Films

28 February 2019 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

The original title of this film may be very short in German lenguage, but it explains a lot of facts: German farmers protected a Jewish family during the Second World War !! Courage, humanity, friendship,ethics !! This film is based on the true story of Marga Spiegel. Unter Bauern is an excellent dramatic film.
