Three tiers of people stand next to a dock, looking out towards the boat. The camera operator films from a boat. A small boat on the side of the dock. People on the side wave and salute to the people on the boats. A huge German steamer ship with two funnels. Seagulls fly. A Nazi flag waves at the back of the boat. The wake of the boat. 10:34:14 Carin II boat in transit [Carin was Goering’s first wife and he named a lot of things after her]. In the BG, steep coast, various views of the ship, Göring at the wheel. Two women on the sundeck.

10:40:25 Hermann Göring with various other men and women on a boat trip to Italy. The shoreline. “Agfa” logo. Those scenes repeat. People on the boat, and waiting on the edge of the dock. The wall behind the people says “NOI TIREREMO DIRITTO.” Capri, Italy. People stand on board preparing to disembark. Goring is the first to get off, with camera around his neck, and he steps into a car. Car moves through harbor town, Göring beckons people and waves graciously. People hand him flowers, and reach to shake his hand. Journey continues along the coast. A ship in the water says “CAPRI” on the back. Views of the landscape. The car procession moves up the hilly streets of Capri, driving past signs that say “Ristorante” and “Hotel Italia”. Locals wave and clap. 10:43:22 Children in white dresses salute the cars as they drive past, as do the adults above. Panoramic shots of the landscape of Capri, including the Faraglioni rock formations. Back on mainland Italy. Vesuvius.
