Film | Accession Number: 1989.343.1 | RG Number: RG-60.0078 | Film ID: 140
Image

Excerpts from Nazi film footage. Many people crossing over a footbridge into the ghetto. Homeless people sitting in the street. LSs of tenement buildings. Shots of bodies being taken off the street and loaded onto a death cart. Tanks on road. Brief shot that showing two German soldiers (SS?) standing in the middle of the street with damgaed buildings on either side. Smoke fills the street. The narration states that this is footage of the 1943 uprising and it appears quite similar to "Stroop Report" still photos. Distant shot of fires burning, then panning shot of destroyed ghetto.
