Sensationelles Filmmaterial! Berlin nach der Apokalypse in Farbe [translated from German: “Sensational footage! Berlin after the apocalypse in color”].


Sobering. If you haven’t seen this video you should take the time to watch. It is only seven minutes long; a Technicolor compilation of film taken in Berlin after the end of World War II, 72 years ago.

“In early April, the Western Allies finally pushed forward in Italy and swept across western Germany, while Soviet and Polish forces stormed Berlin in late April. American and Soviet forces met at the Elbe river on 25 April. On 30 April 1945, the Reichstag was captured, signalling the military defeat of Nazi Germany.”
