About the courage to desert, the power of remaining loyal and a vision that had a lasting impact on the Federal Republic of Germany. 30,000 deserters were sentenced to death in Germany during the Second World War. One of them was Ludwig Baumann. He survived the death penalty, concentration camp and the Eastern Front. After the war, the unjust sentences of Nazi military justice remain valid in German democracy. He begins to fight for his goal: the abolition of death sentences for deserters. In 2002 – almost 60 years after the end of the war – he reached his goal. Ludwig Baumann changed the Federal Republic of Germany. A tribute to humanity and against war.
