Thousands of captured German soldiers are marched through Moscow streets.
Title reads: "60,000 steps to degradation".
Moscow, Russia (Soviet Union, USSR).
Various C/Us of dejected German soldiers in filthy ragged uniforms. Various shots of the 60,000 dirty, scruffy German prisoners being marched through streets of Moscow. At the head are German officers (including 19 generals), then the men follow on. Good C/Us of Russians (mainly women and children) watching the prisoners pass with solemn faces. Red army soldiers guard the prisoners with fixed bayonets. Water carts spray the streets where the Germans have marched in a "subtle gesture of contempt".
