Maj. Sydney L. Burr Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2008.118.1
Collection Summary
Amateur film shot by Jamie Russell’s father, Major Sydney L. Burr, of destroyed German towns after the war, including heavily bomb-damaged Nuremberg and Paris. A second reel contains footage of Dachau immediately after liberation, including shots of survivors and of victims of the Dachau death train. The film is of very good quality with well-shot scenes and nice contrast.
