Soft focus throughout. Shots of rubble in the streets of Nuremberg. An explosion raises a cloud of dust. More scenes of bomb damage and another explosion. Long shot of American soldiers posing next to one of the eagle and swastika sculptures in the Nuremberg stadium. Shot of the destroyed stadium. More shots of massive destruction in the city. German civilians on the streets. Destroyed German tanks in Darmstadt (identified by signs). A reel break then shots of American soldiers and an antiaircraft gun silhouetted against the setting sun. Back to bomb-damaged scenes of Nuremberg. The camera focuses on a message from the Fuehrer affixed to a kiosk. The sign has been half ripped away. German civilians make their way across a hill of rubble. This appears to be the same location as Story 4375.
