Forsaken Places

Historic places, forgotten, threatened and threatening at the same time. Made of steel, poured in concrete or blasted out of a mountain: Yesterday’s monuments from the great eras of history come alive again. These places are also full of personal stories told to us by contemporary witnesses. Up close and personal accounts of natural disasters, wars or global mega accidents that took a toll on those monuments and places — and the people around them as well.

In four episodes, we visit twelve such “lost places” − military bases, prestigious buildings, tourist paradises and hospitals. And the people who used to live and work there help us discover these mysterious places. They guide us through an emotional and educational journey into their personal stories, which are always part of history as well.
