  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates and locations unclear or unknown.

    France.

    Various C/Us weeping French women embracing German prisoners. It appears the German soldiers are their lovers, the French girls carry cases suggesting they want to accompany their boyfriends back to Germany. An American soldier intervenes: he seems to be explaining to them the women cannot go whilst also reassuring them. One woman collapses with grief - heart wrenching stuff!

    Various shots of wounded prisoners being helped to walk or being carried off on stretchers. C/U defiant looking German officer. Various shots scruffy French resistance fighters laughing and exchanging cigarettes.

    More shots German prisoners, some look relieved. Various shots civilian woman wearing red cross armband bandaging prisoners. She shakes hands with some German medics as they leave.

    Note: good item for showing collaborators / collaboration.
