U.S. Army soldiers march German prisoners of war through the streets of captured Munich Germany, in World War II
Munich Germany Date:1945, May 1 Duration:1 min 26 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Large numbers of surrendered German soldiers march in loose formation along a street in Munich, Germany, a week before the end of World War 2, in Europe. Point of view (POV) shot from camera moving beside and slightly faster than the column of surrendered and captured German soldiers. A group of American soldiers riding on a Sherman tank, pass the camera. Several M-36 Jackson tank destroyers pass, also loaded with U.S. soldiers. Two German women are seated, quietly, on a parked M1 57mm gun from an Anti-Tank Company of the 222nd Infantry Regiment (42nd Rainbow Division). Saddened German civilian spectators watch the goings on from an island in the center of the street. Pedestrians, cyclists, and people moving goods on hand carts, cross on an intersecting street. The columns of surrendered German soldiers line the other street, away from the intersection. Some of the German women watching wipe tears from their eyes.
