Polish Army parade in Warsaw

Film | Accession Number: 2003.214 | RG Number: RG-60.4005 | Film ID: 3004

Scenes of the Polish army marching through the streets of Warsaw: this is a sign/prelude to war. Several CUs of shop windows displaying proudly the photos of Polish leaders, particularly Pilsudski, Paderewski and the current (1937) President Mosczieksky. This clip features a ceremony where President Mosczieksky passes the baton to Marshall Smigly-Ridz, who was being hailed as the man who would lead the Poles to victory over Germany. Polish officers using horses for crowd control, MCU of Polish Cardinal Hlond, who made several anti-Jewish statements. VS of the bystanders, young boys watch the parade perched in the trees along the parade route, young women in traditional costume line the parade route, all signs of Polish solidarity.

**From Julien Bryan's film "Poland the Country and the People" released in 1948, shot 1936-1937.**
