Verdant Landscapes Replace Gray Rubble: Green is the Heath [Grün ist die Heide] (1951)
In Green is the Heath (1951), Hans Stüwe plays an expellee from Silesia; Sonja Ziemann plays his daughter Helga; and Rudolf Prack is the forester Rainer. Because the Lüneburger Heide was severely damaged in World War II, director Hans Deppe had to set up "foliage backdrops" in the landscape. Below is a film still with Hans Stüwe and Rudolf Prack.
