Earth in your hand

(52 min, 2004, Documentary)

Earth in your hand is the story of those people, who refused to leave their home, when all others did. Out of a previous 1500 Saxons in the town Hammersdorf (Rumania) only 47 inhabitants of German origin remain. These last flag-bearers are determined to stay put and keep what’s still there. There is absolute calm in Hammersdorf this summer - until "The Germans" arrive. This year the Saxon emigrants return to visit their “old homeland”, many for the first time since they emigrated.
