Rose Street is a 2003 movie directed by Margarethe von Trotta (The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum) which is based on the so-called Rosenstrasse protest that took place in Berlin in 1943. New Yorker Ruth Weinstein has just buried her husband. In her grief, she recalls her Jewish Orthodox religion and orders 30 days of mourning for the entire family. Moreover, she rejects the marriage of her daughter Hannah to the South American Luis. This is met with complete incomprehension by Hannah. In order to find out the reason for her mother's behavior, who has never spoken a word about her past, Hannah goes to Berlin in search of clues. There she gets in touch with 90-year-old Lena Fischer, who finally breaks the wall of silence.

The following weapons were used in the film Rose Street:


Walther P38

An SS-Oberscharführer (technical sergeant) (Frank Behnke) and SS-Rottenführer (corporal) Schneider (Rainer Strecker) are seen with Walther P38 pistols.

The SS-Rottenführer brandishes his pistol to drive peoples away from the windows.
The left side is seen as he points it at withdrawing Jewish peoples. Judging by the shoulder and sleeve insignia, he is a Rottenführer but he is simply credited as an SS Man.
