Film | Accession Number: 2003.214 | RG Number: RG-60.3980 | Film ID: 3003

EXT, daylight scenes. MS of a building that has been devastated by a German bomb. The buildings surrounding this look basically in tact. MCU of two women dead in the field, also the bodies of men. 01:07:05:04 Julien Bryan's book "Siege" (1940) contains a passage about this scene. There were a group of potato pickers in a field on the outskirts of the city of Warsaw, the German planes flew overhead, missing them on their first fly over, the potato pickers got up from the ground, thinking they were safe, only to be surprised by the same planes returning along the same flight path and this time killing two, and wounding the five others. A sequence of CUs of the dead bodies.
