Watch the mesmerizing color footage of a bombed and burned out Berlin—taken in July 1945—roughly two months after German forces surrendered. The video comes from Chronos Media and shows Germans trying to clean-up the charred remains of the city.

A rare glimpse into life in Berlin in 1945. That's how it looked like just after the Second World War in Berlin!

Fascinating moving pictures in color show the situation of the city in summer 1945, just after the Second World War and the capitulation of Germany. Daily life after years of war.

Pictures from the destroyed city, the Reichstag, Brandenburger Tor, Adlon, Führerbunker, Unter den Linden, rubble women working in the streets, the tram is running again.
