A museum building tells history

The explanatory film tells the story of the reduit of the upper Danube bastion, part of the federal fortress in Ulm, which today houses the Danube Swabian Central Museum.

Contemporary witnesses tell

In autumn 2017, a film team interviewed 20 Danube Swabian contemporary witnesses in southern Germany and the Danube region. The generation experienced during World War II and the post-war years as well as their children and grandchildren had their say. A comprehensive documentation was created about the life paths and perspectives of several generations. The four-part film series shows an excerpt from this documentation.
