In 1946 several thousand German specialists working in aviation development were forcibly relocated, along with their families, to the Stalinist Soviet Union, where they had to work in the aviation industry. This resettlement was part of German reparations following the Second World War. The specialists lived near Moscow for years before they were allowed to return to Germany. Some of them never returned. Ulrike Schmitz’s grandparents lived for eight years in the village of Podberezye. She set off in search of their memories. What she found was her own reality – independent of the past and distorted by media, but, maybe, possessing its own truth. The book combines her photography of today’s Podberezye with film stills from Russian (propaganda) movies from the Stalinist era.
