Or, in English, I was Nineteen. (1968) A film by Konrad Wolf

Some morning when it is raining and I don’t have a dozen tasks waiting,  I’ll write about this film – Konrad Wolf’s autobiographical tale as a German ex-pat returning with the Soviet Army to “finish off” the Nazis. He was nineteen at the time. Hauntingly effective Soviet-era piece of anti-war propaganda.  You can still feel the anger of the Soviets (which included a number of Germans) at the Nazis.

Other (Post) East German Films I really liked:
