Review/Description: Ann Morrison has created a documentary film based on interviews with people who survived the post-War travails of the Donauschwaben. Its premise is fairly broad, discussing the 15 million Germans from all over eastern Europe who were displaced, but the interviews are almost exclusively with Yugoslavian Germans who experienced Tito’s regime in Yugoslavia. They tell of the coming of the Russians and Partisans, the post-War camps, and the escape attempts. This is one more documentation of that ter rible time.
