World War II ended 75 years ago. Large areas of Berlin were in ruins. And in Siemensstadt, the heart of the company likewise suffered the impact of the war, and subsequently faced the greatest challenge in its history: rebuilding. The Siemens employees, with an almost family-like sense of solidarity, gradually returned to the factories and set about the massive task of restoring operations. It is to that group, who rebuilt Siemensstadt with great effort and hardships, that this film is dedicated.
If it has been possible to rebuild the House of Siemens after the almost hopeless situation at the end of the war, we owe that first and foremost to the loyalty and self-sacrifice of the employees working here.Hermann von Siemens, “Head of the House” of Siemens, 1949
