    Film Provenance
    The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum purchased this from the Bundesarchiv in Berlin, Germany in 2004.
    See also Stories 2542 b to 2549 b on Film ID 248 for duplicate footage, transferred in the early 1990s at NCJF via John E. Allen. See also Story 3840, Film ID 2661 for a more recent transfer of the same film reel from WFDiF.

    Some shots related to sequence in Story 2539, Film ID 248. See also Stories 2114 and 2115, Film ID 2257 for much better quality and more sustained shots of the prison and prisoners. For similar footage of Jewish police driving people through streets, see Stories 2546 b and 2547 b, Film ID 248; and Story 2114, Film ID 2257 (longer, better quality). For similar footage of placing corpse in a casket, see Story 2115, Film ID 2257; Story 723, Film ID 247 (although those shots are much poorer quality and less gruesome); and Story 3824, Film ID 2324.

    BA Porotkoll sheet describes this as amateur footage, but not all of the footage is taken by the amateur to whom it is attributed, namely the scene of Volksdeutsch with captured Polish soldiers, pointing out certain ones; this scene comes from a Deutsche Wochenschau. Private names associated with this material, listed in the BA document, are: Paul Adam, Dr. Herbert, and Andreas Honowski.
