What did the Warsaw Uprising look like from the German perspective? The film presents not only the relation between the insurgents and the civilian dwellers of the time, but also the Wehrmacht soldiers who were sent to Warsaw as young boys at the beginning of April 1944. The stories about the horror those people have lived through are accompanied by special archive materials, including German aerial pictures of the occupied Polish capital, found in the National Archives in Washington, and the propaganda film chronicles of the General Government.
