Bert Brecht and Helene Weigel fled Germany immediately after the Reichstag fire in 1933. A problem: just to be on the safe side, they had previously left their two-year-old daughter Barbara in Augsburg with Grandpa Brecht. How could the Nazis be prevented from getting their hands on the child? What role did the Augsburg district of Großaitingen play? An attempt at a reconstruction, with historical sound recordings.

Concept and realisation:
