A Woman In Berlin


"A Woman in Berlin" is a 2008 film written and directed by Max Färberböck.


"A Woman in Berlin" is an anonymous memoir by a German woman. It covers the weeks from 20 April to 22 June 1945, during the fall of Berlin and its occupation by the Red Army. The writer describes the widespread rapes by Soviet soldiers, including her own, and the women's pragmatic approach to survival, often taking Soviet officers for protection. It was published first in English in 1954 in the United States. When published in German in 1959, the book was either "ignored or reviled" in Germany, as people reacted negatively to the portrayal of their women as victims. The author refused to have another edition published in her lifetime.
