    The footage seen here comes from various dates and locations, and is rather jumbled up.

    Of the identifiable material, the footage beginning at 0:38 was shot at the Ohrdruf concentration camp, a sub camp of the Buchenwald camp system, on 12th April 1945.

    Seen at 1:04 is General Dwight D. Eisenhower with, behind him, General George Patton and General Omar Bradley.

    The shots from 1:17 to 1:22 show camp survivors demonstrating how German guards had tortured them.

    The material beginning at 2:41 was shot at Worms, Germany, on 7th April 1945, and was shot by a cameraman named "Gerzeni", of what looks to be the 163rd Signal Photo Company. His material shows a "PW cage", a temporary field installation for holding prisoners of war. (It is likely that the footage prior to 0:38 also shows this PW cage, as prisoners arrive at it).

    The footage from 4:13 onwards shows the damage to Hamm railway station.
