    The footage was all shot on 11 October 1944, by a cameraman named as "Laurence".

    Is not far away from where I live. About 15 km from the Belgian-German border in Germany.
    The village near means Zweifall... and not "Zwiefall". Now part of the City Stolberg/Germany.
    Not far from the legendary "HUERTGEN FOREST"
