Event Originally produced by DEFA Film Library in 1952.
Summary After years in Soviet captivity, farmer Heinz Weimann returns to the village of Bärenweiler, in West Germany. His joy at returning home is clouded by news that US occupation forces intend to build an airfield on village lands, in preparation for a confrontation with the Soviet Union. The villagers are expected to move out. The villagers turn to the government and local bishop, but receive no assistance. Led by Heinz, they protest peacefully—but he is arrested and imprisoned. As the case becomes known, trade unions from all over West Germany mobilize to support and help the villagers. When American forces attempt to evict the villagers, residents of the surrounding villages march on Bärenweiler and show their solidarity. At the end, Bärenweiler is saved and the Americans are forced to leave and abandon their plans.
