German occupation of Belgium; civilians, soldiers, refugees

Film | Accession Number: 1991.260.1 | RG Number: RG-60.0344 | Film ID: 203

Life under occupation in Belgium: citizens and soldiers "share" the town. Belgian POWs, supervised by Belgian troops (?collaborators? They wear large white armbands. Belgian policeman also visible), work on a bridge. Women walk their bicylces across the bridge, following the soldiers' directions. Germans eating; inspecting weapons in a town square. Sunny day. Soldiers march on country road. Refugee family drives by. More refugees -- in horse-drawn carts, on foot, and pushing bicycles. A car rolls by, loaded with possessions and pushed by the men and boys of the family, while the women and a baby are visible through the window. Two nuns in their habits walk along the roadside. A woman puases to take a couple of swigs from a wine bottle.
