In 1983 the supposed discovery of Adolf Hitler's diaries in a small village behind the iron curtain caused one of the biggest press scandals in Germany. In 2013 the feature-length TV Documentary "Absturz im Wald" revisits the incident, as historical event and famous myth. Animated sequences were used to restage actual history as well as possible happenings.
