Film | Accession Number: 2009.341.2 | RG Number: RG-60.4836 | Film ID: 2878

The de Groot family walking in Sonsbeek Park. People riding bikes. An older man (Max Turksma, Meijer de Groot's bridge parter) with a cigar on a bicycle greets the cameraman.

Cut to a different outing in Arnhem with a view of Castle Zypendaal, the large mansion owned by Baron von Heemstra where Audrey Hepburn and her mother lived during the war, in a field surrounded by trees. Children play with a small dog. More shots of the castle and then of a smaller building on the grounds.

Back to the de Groots walking in Sonsbeek Park along paths in the forest, all of them very well dressed. 01:05:41 CU, baby in a carriage. This is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wolf Nathans, friends of the de Groot family. The family, then Rachel, push the baby carriage through the city (slowed down). 01:05:50 A German soldier is visible walking behind them. Brief shot of a sign affixed to a fence lining the street, reading "Apeldoorn" with an arrow pointing right. Another view of walking on Jansbinnensingel.
