    Images of Great German victory - occupation of Poland (September 1939)

  • Description

    Poland.

    Various shots of the people reconstructing a destroyed bridge. Spanish voiceover. Paperwork states that this is a footage of the Polish prisoners of war working on a bridge destroyed during German invasion. If this is correct this is a version for Spanish audience.

    Several shots of the German artillery shelling Warsaw - still Spanish voiceover (mentions Polacovs - presumably Poles).

    German and Polish officers shake hands confirming Polish surrender. Soldiers wander around. German soldiers looking on from trenches. Succession of shots of piles of surrendered Polish guns and small arms. Aerial shots of abandoned Polish field guns lying on field.

    Several shots of the German troops entering Warsaw. Still Spanish voiceover. Germans marching, people look on.

    Various shots of Germans feeding Polish civilians.

    Grandiose military parade with German flags flying around. Adolf Hitler watching march past from dais, he salutes to his troops - Nazi salute. Quite impressive and powerful military parade.

    UFA sign on a black screen - the end.
