  • Description

    Film shows Rotterdam with its centre rebuilt from the ruins left after the German bombing attack of May 14, 1940.

    Vast blocks of flats, huge new office buildings of ultra-modern design, long straight streets of great width -- all combine to form an exceedingly handsome city of which the Dutch are rightly immensely proud.

    Few visible traces of the 1940 bombing remain, although here and there empty bombed sites from which the rubble has long since been cleared away are still to be found.
