Berlin street scenes: park bench marked for Jews only

Film | Accession Number: 1991.259.1 | RG Number: RG-60.0383 | Film ID: 210

Street in Berlin: uniformed Nazis salute guard at door. Edge of park at Olivaerplatz, wooden benches below stone columns & arbors, child. CU of signs: Top: Citizens are asked to keep their dogs on leash. Bottom: "Die gelben Baenke sind fuer Jueden." [The yellow benches are for Jews.] (One shot of the sign "for Jews" is upsidedown in the original film.) Various people sit on other benches in the small park. Different camera angles of park, none showing the actual sign in context. Note: J.Bryan's film lecture "Germany 1937" identifies this location as "Oliviaplatz" which is, in fact, Olivaerplatz, near Kurfuerstendamm and Kostanzestrasse.
