After Nazi Germany surrendered in May 1945, General Arnold ordered Lt. Col. Owen Crump to document the extent of the damage caused by aerial bombardment. This project was code-named "Special Film Project 186." Crump and his crew, using color film, surveyed bomb damage inflicted on the major European cities. In addition, Crump recorded the debriefings of Nazi civilian and military personnel in Allied custody such as Herman Goering, as well as the capture of the Ohrdruf and Buchenwald concentration camps by American soldiers. Crump and his crew shot hundreds of hours of film - most of which has never been seen. The Army Air Force declined to fund the production and editing of the footage at an estimated cost of $1 million. The documentary The Story of Special Film Project 186 points out that the effort was "the biggest color film project of World War II—and the biggest unseen film of all time."

A powerful and evocative film documenting the battle for Berlin in 1945. With some excellent original footage and testimonies, this film will be very useful for students of the period. The picture quality is a little grainy at first due to the digitisation from an old VHS tape, but it's still good viewing. Uploaded for educational purposes only. Any advertising that appears is beyond my control. All videos on this channel are unmonetised.
Der Film zeigt zunächst die Leere und Perspektivlosigkeit der ersten Tage und Wochen, doch schon bald ist das öffentliche Leben wieder halbwegs organisiert. Die Jahre 1946/47 stehen ganz im Zeichen des Wiederaufbaus. 1948 bricht der Konflikt offen aus, die Teilung wird gefestigt. Trotzdem ist Berlin noch eine Stadt, können die Menschen zusammenkommen, ganz gleicht ob in Ost oder West.

Fall of Berlin – 1945, The Fall of Berlin, or just Berlin is a Soviet documentary film about the Battle of Berlin, titled in Russian Битва за Берлин 1945 г., literally The Battle for Berlin – 1945. The film was directed by Yuli Raizman and Yelizaveta Svilova. The film begins with an animated map of Eastern Europe with Soviet soldier double exposed on the bottom. The narrator lists the names of the rivers that the Red Army crosses as they march west: Volga, Don, Desna, Dnieper, Bug, Dvina, Neman, Vistula, and finally, Oder. The Soviet arrival at the Oder river is shown, along with the broken bridges across it. The undeterred men of the Red Army are shown as they cross the river while under German fire. The use of missile artillery by the Soviet forces is showcased. After the Oder is crossed, the assault on Berlin itself begins. Footage of the actual battle is shown, as the Red Army fights German troops, street by street and building by building. This is interspersed with shots of Nazi propaganda films showing parades in the same areas, providing a sense of irony. A dramatic sequence follows a detachment of the Red Army in the assault on the Reichstag, which ends with the famous photograph, raising the Red Flag over the Reichstag. When the Russian troops entered Berlin, they began to push forward to the Reichstag. There were soldiers from every available battalion, with flame throwers, rifles, sniper rifles, automatic weapons, like the PPSh-41, and others. There were over 40 Soviet T-34 tanks that were pushing the German soldiers back. The battle for Berlin was one of the longest battles for a city in the years 1900-2000. Shortly before the Russian troops entered Berlin, Hitler was ready to make a half-peace with England and the USA, giving away Berlin to them. He said: "I'd rather give Berlin to the Americans or the English, only to prevent Russian forces from taking it over!", but he thought of this too late. Shortly after that the Russians approached and attacked Berlin. On the 8th of May, 1945, the flag of the USSR replaced the Nazi German flag in Berlin. This was the end of World War II in Europe.
