    Overview

    Collection Summary
    A collection of 8mm black and white home movies depicting the life of a German non-Jewish family in Nazi Germany. The films were taken by Theodor Röckle who received the Iron Cross during World War I, was a waiter by trade, and worked on the German railway service. He briefly sought work in the United States in 1928 but returned to Germany in 1931. Scenes include prewar Germany, a Nazi torchlight parade, the wedding of Theodor’s brother Gerald, who was a soldier for Germany and POW of the Americans, planes flying over Berlin, and the daily lives of family members.
