    Film Provenance
    George R. Wheeler obtained this collection of wartime films from his late wife's first husband, Mr. Givens, who received the films from an acquaintance and watchmaker, Mr. Greenberg. Greenberg smuggled them out of Germany in the late 1930s or early 1940s. Mr. Wheeler, himself a member of the 94th Engineers Regiment during World War II, donated the 16mm films to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in October 2003.
