World War II Damage to French Cathedral in Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin, Germany
Berlin Germany Date:1945, July Duration:1 min 8 sec Sound:NO SOUND
German civilians seen walking, from time to time, in Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin, during summer of 1945, after end of World War 2, in Europe. Behind them is the bombed out remains of the Französischer Dom (French Cathedral). The walls have collapsed in places and Statuary in niches have been severely damaged, including one seen headless. Camera pans up the side of the cathedral, to the base of the dome, and then to an iron fence with a makeshift sign (in beautiful script) reading "Französischer Dom." A man walks past the camera, wearing a back pack. Camera shows fallen brick and other rubble at steps, below the iron fence and sign. Glimpse of American military cameraman holding makeshift slate, with Camera equipment behind him.
