Somewhere in Berlin (German: Irgendwo in Berlin) is a film produced in the Soviet occupation zone of Allied-occupied Germany, the area that later became East Germany. It was released in 1946, and was the third DEFA film. It sold 4,179,651 tickets.[1] It was part of the group of rubble films made in the aftermath of the Second World War.



A group of children play bravely in the ruins of Berlin after World War II. One boy's father comes home from a POW camp. The boy is saddened by his father, who is a hopeless, powerless man, but the children eventually give the father fresh hope by persuading him to clean up his badly bomb-damaged garage.
