Cologne Germany Date:1945, March 27 Duration:2 min 25 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Scenes showing Cologne, Germany, near the end of World War 2, in Europe. Nearby damaged buildings seen from inside a tall building, through hole blasted its wall. Camera pans across the scene. Some rooftops seem relatively inscathed, while others are gone and buildings reduced to shells. Rubble around the remains of buildings. At left in one view, the Spires of the Cologne cathedral can be seen, briefly, silhouetted against the sky, near the Rein (Rhine) river, in the distance.
Scene shifts to view from inside a tower of the cathedral. The remains of the nearby Hohenzollern Bridge, are seen with spans dropped into the Rhine River. Bombed out buildings seen very close to the cathedral. (But,there is no evidence the cathedral is damaged.) View of the Rhine River from a different vantage point looking past a gargoyle, on a cathedral parapet.
