January 22, 1932.

Retribution is swift. After three days, the army and militias move in and, in some villages, slaughter all males over age 12. Elsewhere, they summarily execute anyone suspected of having a link to the Communists. Over the next few weeks, 10,000 people are massacred.
Ella Bergmann-Michel aborted her last film "Wahlkampf 1932 (Letzte Wahl)" about the election campaign in Frankfurt because of political reasons. During the shooting of the film Bergmann-Michel was arrested und parts of the films were destroyed. The film only exists as a fragment.
Through testimonies of survivors, an approximation is made to the events that occurred on the date. In the context of the peasant uprising, the massacre was ordered by President Maximiliano Hernández Martínez. 75 years later, a look back to the past is made to try to explain the present of the indigenous communities that were invisibilized.

Maifestspiele 1932 documents the 'Maifestspiel der Wiener Arbeiterschaft' which took place on May 21-22, 1932 in the stadium in Vienna. After the historical revue, numerous delegation marched into the stadium to demonstrate the power and unity of Austrian Social Democracy. This is often wrongly attributed to Pál Fejös. Rather, it was directed by Stephan Hock. The confusion seems to arise from the film being included as a special feature of the Ö-Film / Edition Der Standard DVD release of Fejös' Sonnenstrahl.
"In 1932-33, Ukraine, the breadbasket of Europe, had bountiful crops of grain, yet its people were dying of starvation. In order to crush the will of the independent-minded Ukrainian peasants and secure collectivization of all Ukrainian lands, Joseph Stalin ordered an army of ruthless, Communist Party activists to confiscate all harvested grain and seize all the foodstuffs in the villages. As a result of this genocidal decree, by the end of 1933 nearly 25 percent of the Ukrainian population - up to 10 million people, including 3 million children - had perished! In the face of terror, Ukrainians had little possibility of escaping their horrific fate to create another life elsewhere. Travel was banned for Ukrainians keeping them confined in a prison of starvation within their own villages." - Written by Bobby Leigh
