Slums of Berlin (German:Die Verrufenen) is a 1925 German silent drama film directed by Gerhard Lamprecht and starring Aud Egede-Nissen, Bernhard Goetzke and Mady Christians.[1]


After taking the rap for a crime committed by his girlfriend, a man serves four years in prison. On his release he discovers she has since married a wealthy man, and that he is now ostracized by society including his own family. He sinks into a state of despair, until he is rescued and reformed by a sympathetic prostitute who helps him gain work at a factory.
