What did you fight for?" This question makes the 96-years old Austrian Gerhard Hoffmann, a veteran of the Spanish Civil War and of the Second World War who had been fighting against Fascism, very thoughtful: „You can’t describe that in a few words." NO PASARAN is looking for answers: The film goes on a journey across Europe to meet the last contemporary witnesses of these wars.In the focus of this multinational documentary film are the life paths and fates of Joseph Almudever and his brother Vincent Almudever (France), Giovanni Pesce and his wife Onorina Pesce (Italy), Rosario Sanchez Mora (Spain), Herman Scheerboom (Netherlands), Kurt Goldstein (Germany) and Gerhard Hoffmann (Austria).When they were volunteering to join the fight, they all were teenagers. But nobody of them expected a 10 years´ odyssey over the battlefields of Europe and through the fascist concentration or extermination camps until the return back home.

"A documentary film which has long been overdue." German Film Academy

"Congratulations for your wonderful work of „memoria historia“." Alex Anfruns, INVESTIG'ACTION

"No doubt, this film will catch the interest of the democratic and freedom loving world." Vincent Almudever, Resistance fighter in the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War.
