An injured Soviet Army soldier is assisted in walking by another Russian soldier through the rubble of Berlin. A Soviet soldier fires a shoulder mounted rocket launcher at a building. Desperate German civilians (women, older men, elderly) form a queue line to fill cups from a wooden water barrel. Many wear white arm bands. An older woman scrapes her fingers across a barrel opening looking for any bit of food or drink. A mass of tangled and smashed civilian cars and military vehicles fills the streets in one area, completely blocking any movement. Soviet soldiers continue to capture Berlin street by street. Smoke fills the streets. Civilians carry buckets of water from a street pump. Soviet army vehicles advance on street.
