In 1952, when this film was released, Austria was under joint Allied occupation (American, British, French and Soviet areas). Vienna , much like Berlin, was also divided among four zones of occupation.In 1955, as a result of the newly signed Austrian State Treaty, most of the Allied occupation armies, including the Soviet Army withdrew from Austria.
