    Film Provenance
    The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum purchased this from the Bundesarchiv in Berlin, Germany in January 2001 for possible use in the Museum's special exhibition "Deadly Medicine.".
    Note
    See Stories 3274 through 3281 on Film ID 2502A for entire film "Dasein ohne Leben."

    See Michael Burleigh, "Death & Deliverance," pp.197-200. Says film was probably completed during 1941, "as it was shown, along with the raw material [Hermann] Schweninger had shot, grouped now along rough thematic lines, to a select audience on 10 May 1942." Reports that the film has vanished, but he discovered 8 "of the 23 rolls Schweninger shot for these films, complete with soundtracks,... in 1989-1990... in Potsdam."
