Aftermath - Berlin 1945 (Colour Footage)

Recommended Posts


scene of the woman setting her table reminded me of a family living room in Kosovo back in early 2000..... although the Berliners wouldnt have been able to watch Sky 1 on a satellite dish in '45.  same freaky dollhoue effect though

Though I live here, I could not recognise some of the places.

Berlin was pounded so heavily that it's amazing that you could recognize anything.

Not much of a parking problem in those days - not much traffic either.  The people look a lot happier than what I have heard of those times.

In such extreme situations, people seem to live in the "here & now" only. No worries about past or future.

That is a lot of worries less than we carry around (unnecessarily).

Well, basic landmarks the Reichstag, the Brandenburg gate or Hotel Adlon and some others...

Fascinating video. I lived there with my family from 1963-1965 and still recall a lot of old memories of what was shown in this video.

All I could think of is "the terrible destruction and waste in war".
