Granser set off in search of traces of the town of Gruorn on the Swabian Alb, which was forcibly evacuated in 1939. He documents the eventful history of a landscape that was used for over 100 years as a training ground for the armed forces. In 2005, the terrain, still strongly contaminated with projectiles and unexploded ordnance, was declared a biosphere reserve.
