this was filmed in Czechoslovakia in 1945. it is part of a series of reels that were filmed by american news teams filming the germans surrenering to other american forces so as not to be taken by the Russians ( i think)
There is an 11 minute video on YT of this footage in better quality. Very hard to watch. From the description on your link: " A woman described in the shot sheet as an "SS girl" walks down the road. She has been beaten and one eye is swollen shut. Several shots of her as she walks toward the camera. She clasps her hands (she appears to be holding a deck of playing cards) and looks down. The camera pans down her body." She might have been a prison guard, not true SS, probably from the Mädchenschaften, "League of German Girls". Just an educated guess really.
Thanks for sharing. It's hard footage to be sure. One wonders what happened to all those people....POWs and liberated alike. About the woman, I must doubt if she was "SS". Stumbling around wearing a man's pants with braces and face punched in like that. SS women and female camp guards were usually the first to be evacuated and brought to safety. I have a feeling the woman in the film may have been what Europeans refer to as a "horizontal" collaborator. She may have had a German lover, or a woman who "serviced" German soldiers. It's anyone's guess.....we weren't there.
Wow, what an amazing research study. Those guys have nailed the location of the video, the woman's unit, the date, and the material she is carrying. I would guess that they will eventually determine her identity through German or US documents...this would be a great story for History Detectives.
