I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

Die goldene Stadt (English: The Golden City), is a 1942 German color film directed by Veit Harlan, starring Kristina Söderbaum, who won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress.[2]


Anna, a young, innocent country girl (a Sudeten German[3]), whose mother drowned in the swamp, dreams of visiting the golden city of Prague. After she falls in love with a surveyor, she runs away from the countryside near České Budějovice to Prague to find him. She is instead seduced and later abandoned by her cousin (a Czech). She attempts to return home, but her father rejects her, so she drowns herself in the same swamp where her mother died.



The movie is based on drama Der Gigant by Austrian writer Richard Billinger [de].[3] In the novel, however, it is the heart-broken father who commits suicide; the Nazi Propaganda Ministry, in particular Joseph Goebbels, insisted that it be the daughter rather than the father who dies.[4]


Anna's fate and drowning are clearly represented as the natural consequence of her failure to appreciate the countryside and her longings for the city.[5] This harmonizes with the preference for the countryside of the Blood and Soil doctrine.
