Color film of Berlin after WWII
Amazing HD Color Footage Of Berlin From 1945 Right After End Of WW2

This footage is amazing. Imagine yourself in this devastation, trying to survive. ( earlier film might show us huge piles of rubble with D.P.’s at work moving same ). I’m not sure our people could make the recoveryof the magnitude demonstrated by today’s Germany. Note that the only people shown with any “girth” are our soldiers.

It’s hard to imagine what the city of Berlin might have looked like in the immediate aftermath of WW2, but Kronos Media, a historical-documentary-focused media production company in Hamburg, has released a HD color video that will get us as close as we can to actually being in Berlin in July of 1945. The video shows a city devastated by war, with chains of rubble-clearing teams, facades pock-marked with bullet-holes, and government buildings covered in Allied graffiti.
Believe it or not, the footage is not colorized - it was shot by U.S. Air Force military cameramen on Kodachrome color film. The footage by the First Motion Picture Unit was working on a project called Special Film Project 186, whose purpose was to document the post-war damage of Europe’s greatest cities.
