Untitled -- Lieberman -- home movies

Film | Accession Number: 2009.206.1 | RG Number: RG-60.4803 | Film ID: 2872

Airfield (probably in Poland - grass under the planes) This could be in February 1939 when the family hired a plane to go to Palestine. Biplanes are everywhere, lined up as far as the camera can see. Some are have their engines started. These are most likely Henkel HE51s, a plane used between the World Wars. They take off en masse. Pans of the airfield follow. Cut to the children and a few adults standing around (Poland or Palestine?). Group sits on a bench. Man and woman exit a house. The picture is rather washed out and it is unclear what is going on.
