2005 will mark the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II, when civilians in the eastern German states were caught between the fronts. Based on Antony Beevor’s best-selling book ‘Berlin, the Downfall, 1945′, Sven Ihden investigates the mental state of the German and Soviet armies and the subsequent dramatic effects on the civilian population in his documentary DEATH ON THE EASTERN FRONT.
