The title is the title of novel by Karl May (Der Schatz im Silbersee) which generations of Germans have read in their youth. It was the first one of a series centering around two main characters, the German born traveller Old Shatterhand and the “noble savage” Winnetou, an Apache chief. When the story was turned into a movie in the early 1960s it was filmed in Yugoslavia, in the area around the Plitvice Lakes. A holiday there is for many Germans a holiday with their childhood fantasies.
