NEWSREELS FROM ALLIED OCCUPIED GERMANY 3 (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.


Subtitled version of the second part of Europe in Ruins, long available in our webstore (and still available for those who don’t need subtitles).  The DVD carries Welt im Film newsreels from 07 September to 19 October 1945.  The contents are as follows:
