The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum created this film transfer from Raye Farr's "World at War" film print via Thames in July 1992. Thames, the producer of the "World at War," gave permission in July 1992. Thames purchased their film copy from the Bundesarchiv, where the original film resides; the Bundesarchiv was unable to copy the film for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 1992. The footage was obtained as research for the Museum's Permanent Exhibition.
Transferred from Raye Farr's World at War print. Thames permission for transfer located in departmental files. Bundesarchiv was unable to copy footage; rights to be paid to Transit.
