The footage in the video below was allegedly captured by an American soldier as he was traveling to Nazi Germany only days after the D-Day invasion. The video is silent but speaks volumes about what life in Nazi Germany and the surrounding areas was like as American citizens made their way to the heart of the country.
Soldiers can be seen socializing with each other, interacting with locals, and witnessing the damage dealt by allied airstrikes to the cities and communities surrounding them. Crumbling buildings, abandoned Axis military posts, and grateful civilians are peppered throughout this slice of world history.
The exact locations seen in the video are unclear. But the conditions seen in the video are representative of most areas surrounding the war torn cities at the time.
