Dachau prisoners at home of baker; candlesticks made in Allach

Film | Accession Number: 2010.208.1 | RG Number: RG-60.1285 | Film ID: 2899

This footage was shot by a baker who supplied bread to Dachau concentration camp. See Stories 1282, 1283, and 1284 for related footage. The family (and others?) of the baker gathered around the family dining table, eating and celebrating a first communion. One of the girls is dressed in white with a headband of white flowers. There are two candlesticks on the table, holding lit candles. The candlesticks were made by prisoners in Allach, a subcamp of Dachau, where there was a porcelain manufacturing factory. Several views of people eating; all of them are women and girls, except for one very young boy (probably the baker's son, Wulf)

00:41:02 CU of the baker's young son, Wulf, standing out of doors, presumably in front of the baker's house. A uniformed man (SS guard?) lifts the boy onto a horse that is yoked to a wagon. CUs of the boy looking down at the camera. Camp prisoners in striped uniforms unload boxes from a wagon. One of the prisoners wears a uniform and a white baker's hat. A prisoner places a young girl (likely the baker's daughter) onto a second horse, alongside the boy. The baker's wife feeds pieces of bread to the horses.
