The Battle of Tannenberg Line, often referred to as the Battle of the European SS. WWII. 1944. The bloodiest conflict on the Eastern Front. Volunteer infantry battalions from Denmark, East Prussia, Flanders, Holland, Norway and Wallonia within the Waffen-SS fight off the Soviet Army’s thrust at Germany.
Half of the SS infantry consists of local Estonian conscripts motivated to resist the looming Soviet re-occupation of their small country. Motivated until they meet their brothers in the Soviet Army. Men brought out of Siberian labour camps and now returning home.
Today 70 years on, the makers of Estonia’s biggest ever box-office success “Names in Marble”, try to show the hopes, aims and drama of these men and the ones close to them as objectively as possible. A thrilling war movie, full of action, love, tears and laughter that takes us back to one of the most controversial events in history.
In Estonian, with English subtitles.
