About 17th minute of the movie. A one-armed war veteran has found his son Peter Kranz near an air defense gun on the street of Berlin. It's supposed to be a German 8,8-cm-Flugabwehrkanone (88 FLAK) - these cannons have been often used as anti-tank guns. But in the movie shown is a Soviet air defense gun 52-K (caliber of 85 mm). This part of movie has been made in St.Peterburg in Russia.
After the final credits there is a statement by the real Traudl Jung about her feelings of guilt and responsibility. In the British Cinema release, this is moved to before the credits.
German TV version features ca. 22 minutes of additional footage.
