A Woman in Berlin is a 2008 German film directed by Max Färberböck. It is based on the autobiographical Eine Frau in Berlin first published anonymously in 1953 and later credited to Marta Hillers who lived in Berlin at the end of World War II during and after the Battle of Berlin. After being raped by a number of Soviet soldiers, the film's protagonist, Marta Hillers (Anonyma) played by actress Nina Hoss, petitions the battalion's commanding officer Major Andrej Rybkin (Eugeni Sidikhin) for protection and, after an initial cold refusal, the officer finds himself seduced. He subsequently protects, feeds, and parties with virtually her entire apartment complex—at what turns out to be a great cost to himself.

The following weapons were used in the film A Woman in Berlin:


Walther PPK

The young German soldier (Sebastian Urzendowsky) who is hiding out in the attic of Anonyma's apartment complex with his girlfriend uses a Walther PPK as his weapon.

Submachine Guns


The PPSh-41 is seen numerous times throughout the movie and virtually every Russian soldier is either carrying this or the Mosin-Nagant M91/30. All are seen with the 71-round drum magazine.

Mosin-Nagant M91/30

The Mosin-Nagant M91/30 is seen numerous times throughout the movie and virtually every Russian soldier is either carrying this or the PPSh-41. It is interesting to note that no carbine models are seen as they would have been more appropriate for the close-quarters fighting than the long rifle variant.
