    Collection Summary
    Experts at Northeast Historic Film in Maine alerted Archive staff to a collection of private films shot by an American liberator and facilitated duplication for the Museum. The Lt. Col. Frederick Kenison Collection offers a view of the experiences of American troops confronted by the reality of war and Nazi atrocities in the spring of 1945. The 8mm black and white and color home movies document the years 1943 to 1945 when Lt. Col. Kenison served in the US Army in France and Germany. He filmed refugees, the liberation of a concentration camp, Hitler’s headquarters near Berchtesgaden, American soldiers, and German prisoners of war. A selection of his films were screened during the 8th Annual Home Movie Day in New Hampshire in October 2010.
