Fires burning uncontrolled from German bombing and shelling of towns in Poland during World War II. German tanks and troops moving slowly along smoke filled street. Warehouses on fire. Team of horses pulling refugees and wagon load of belongings. German soldiers restringing utility wires in midst of smoke. It appears that everything except stone and concrete is on fire. Numerous Polish refugees, including some former soldiers,leaving the burning towns with belongings in wagons pulled by horses and oxen. Vehicles in the bottoms of bomb craters. Abandoned wagons and vehicles clutter a country road. A dead horse. Polish artillery pieces scattered about in a creek. Polish civilians digging makeshift graves and burying shrouded dead. A woman stands alone, arms akimbo, silhouetted next to chimney, which is all that remains of her cottage, as refugees pass in horse-drawn wagons. Polish people trying to resume their lives during World War 2 in the midst of ruins. A church building still standing. German troops preparing to load a wounded soldier into a waiting airplane, for medical evacuation.
