    Deportation of Bessarabian Jews to Transnistria

    Overview

    Description
    Low aerial shots from an airplane show the destroyed city of Balti. Pan across dead bodies, with the narration that the KPU (communists) and their "Jewish helpers" had perpetrated the murders. The next shot shows the forced march of Bessarabian Jews in the area of Balti, Romania, part of the deportations to Transnistria, late fall, 1941. The narration describes how these "eastern Jewish types" overran Europe after World War I and attempted to destroy the culture of the non-Jews. Long line of impoverished people moving along a country road and over a low wooden bridge. Some are barefoot. Most carry bundles. They are guarded by a few Romanian soldiers. Pan of a seemingly endless line of people stretching back to the horizon.

    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.
