Borgward- The biggest collaps in German automobile history


The bankruptcy of the Borgward-company in 1961 was a turning point for the young Federal Republic of Germany, because it was the first crack in the so-called German “Wirtschaftswunder”. Borgward was the fourth-largest German automobile manufacturer. But what actually happened at that time? Did his enviers thwart Borgward? And who was behind the “Spiegel”-Story, which started it at all and made the creditors go on the warpath? And why didn’t the banks give Borgward accommodation credits in his cash crisis?

The Documentary-Drama „Die Affäre Borgward (working title)” is supported by nordmedia – Film- und Mediengesellschaft Niedersachsen / Bremen mbH.
