NEWSREELS FROM ALLIED OCCUPIED GERMANY 2 (2013) * with switchable English subtitles *

The guns have fallen silent in Europe; the Western Allies have consolidated control in their zones. The Wochenschau reports with their introductory music from Liszt's Les Preludes are no longer broadcast. But a new propaganda has replaced the Deutsche Wochenschau; it's the newsreels of the Allied conquerors: Welt im Film.
