German siege of Warsaw, Poland, Sept. 1939

Film | Accession Number: 2003.214 | RG Number: RG-60.3973 | Film ID: 3003

Extreme long shots: German planes flying over Warsaw- these are the shots that Julien Bryan talks about in his book "Siege". These are the shots that he took while standing on the roof of the American Embassy in Warsaw, Poland in September of 1939 as the Germans began their air attack of the city. The shots are composed of mostly gray sky with the occasional plane passing through the frame, this is not the most dynamic looking footage, but it documents the beginning of the German air attack and the very beginning of World War II.
