Nuernberg, April 1945

This footage was shot in the city of Nürnberg, probably by the end of April 1945, maybe only a few days after Nuremberg was taken by units of the U.S. Army. The battle for Nürnberg lasted five days. The capture of Nuremberg by units of the 7th U.S. Army was of high symbolic value; strategically, the largely destroyed Nuremberg was not of particular importance in this phase of the war. The military defense of Nürnberg was hopeless due to the overall situation and the superiority of the US Army.
