Dec 23, 2023 | History, Videos

The small, picturesque village of Comrie in Scotland holds an extraordinary legacy, one that is equal parts peculiar and heartwarming. It all began with a former SS man who came to the village as a prisoner of war and was taken aback by the warmth, generosity, and kindness of the villagers. So much so that he left behind a substantial sum of over €400,000 to go toward the well-being of the village.
Now, a remarkable new documentary explores the intriguing story behind this unexpected act of charity. It uncovers the man behind this legacy, delving into his journey from being a German soldier to a Scottish villager, and the friendships he forged that would last a lifetime. Through interviews with local residents and visitors alike, the film paints a vivid picture of the unique bond that brought two vastly different worlds together, a bond that would leave an indelible mark on the village and its people.
