Martha Bieder, born in 1910 in Berlin, is the last rubble-woman in Rummelsburg. Every day, rain or shine, she stands at the conveyor belt of an excavation plant – as she has for decades – sorting through rubble. After a retirement party thrown for her by her male colleagues, she tells stories from her difficult but fulfilling life in post-war Germany.
