Berlin 1945

This is fascinating... what would it mean to go about your daily business in that year, in that country, in so many of those cities?

Dangerous chemicals.

Seven minutes of color film footage of Berlin in 1945, right after the end of World War II. Lots of bombed out buildings, soldiers, bicycles, rebuilding, and people going about their daily business.
Be sure to watch all the way to the end for an incredible aerial shot of the Brandenburg Gate and the Unter den Linden that shows the scale of damage done to the city's buildings.
