Footage from Büblingshausen POW camp.
Ukrainian soldiers attend a flag blessing ceremony. They are wearing new uniforms in the style of the Ukrainian armed forces complete with Karakuls. A Ukrainian band is playing. Carrying their luggage the soldiers march to the train station in order to return to their home. The Ukrainian Memorial on the site of the former camp is shown at the end of the film, this sequence was shot with different film stock. There are several versions of this film in existence. In one of these, a caption gives an exact date: “Wetzlar, March 3, 1918 / The Ukrainian POWs return to their home”. After the closing of the camp the remaining barracks eventually were used for the development of Büblingshausen, a new suburb of Wetzlar. A street called “Unter dem Nussbaum” today marks the site of the camp exit.

Since the 1910s, Oskar Barnack – inventor of the "Leica" – has documented the activities around Wetzlar with his self-constructed camera. He filmed floods and town fairs, medical experiments, sporting events and the company that employed him as a chief engineer: the Optical Works Ernst Leitz in Wetzlar. His films are the cadre of a film archive that gives local history the same importance as the results of major historic events.
