Newsreel Program

Original title: (Das Augenzeugen-Programm)
GDR, 1946, 57 min, b&w
In German; English subtitles

This playlist includes 32 episodes from the newsreel series Der Augenzeugen (The Eyewitness), which were produced by the East German DEFA Studios from 1946 to 1980. For the most part, the newsreels were made on a weekly basis and treated all aspects of East German life, as well as world news events submitted by foreign news agencies. Lasting about 15 minutes each, the newsreels were screened in movie theaters before the main feature. Each program—of the almost 2,000 produced in more than thirty years—included several short episodes and opened with the slogan: You See, You Hear, You Judge! (Sie sehen selbst, Sie hören selbst, urteilen Sie selbst!).
