Ware für Katalonien

Ware für Katalonien (English-language title: Goods For Catalonia) is an East German black-and-white film, directed by Richard Groschopp. It was released in 1959.


At 1959, the People's Police notices a strange occurrence: the local demand for optical instruments increases, while the orders from abroad sharply decrease. Several detectives launch an investigation, revealing that a West German criminal named Hasso Teschendorf has been forging documents and using them to illegally obtain the goods, which he sold to the Spanish Army and to customers in Barcelona. After a long hunt, the smuggler is arrested just before he manages to flee to West Berlin.
