03. process of Flossenbürg in the courthouse of the former Dachau concentration camp currently 52 SS guards and captains responsible for before a US military court for murder, abuse, strangulation and torture of the prisoners of the former Flossenbürg concentration camp camp.
The Flossenbürg, located close to the Czech border, was formerly a labor camp for professional criminals. Since the beginning of the year 1941, political prisoners of any nationality were hospitalized in this camp and the 48 affiliated labour camps. Over 25,000 prisoners were killed there by executions, ill-treatment and starvation.
The evacuation of the camp shortly before the occupation by American troops were due to a special command 597 prisoners murdered, among them many women.
As survivors of this March of terror, a Polish witness is prompted to identify the Commander of the attached woman bearing cloud Castle, Wilhelm Brusch.
The trial of the leaders of the Flossenbürg concentration camp continues.
04. Monte Casino rises again the monastery built by German troops at the military base Monte Casino in Central Italy was completely destroyed in the spring of 1944.
Now go the monks on the construction work.
The bells of the monastery are now silent and broken... and remains of the precious library which once 120,000 volumes be included, laboriously salvaged and assigned this Monte casinos, that the venerable Benedictine monastery was - turned into ruins and then new rises in old size and beauty is the third time in the history of the thirteen hundred years.
05. How is the weather?
How is the weather? There is now reliable answer to this question asked every day and every hour, and everywhere. All major German weather service have operations fully.
The highest Observatory is located on the Zugspitze, nearly 3,000 meters above sea level.
By this 50-year-old weather station, all meteorological phenomena, such as wind direction and strength, as well as atmospheric pressure and precipitation are registered and passed on an ongoing basis.
3,000 meters deep, on sea level weather waiting are stationed. On the fire ships in the coastal areas of the North Sea, especially the currents and the temperature of the sea are registered in addition to the usual measurements.
On the coast, a weather balloon is highly approved.
As a result, the direction of the wind and its speed can be measured to heights of 20,000 feet. The weather forecast has its special significance for agriculture, ship and air traffic. All weather stations run daily about 6,000 weather reports from around the world. These are evaluated and entered into the weather maps. The report of the weather service, which is then carried by the individual radio stations is thus created through cooperation of all weather wait.
06. Frankfurt/a. M German Athletics Championships in 1946 were held the first German Championships in Frankfurt am Main, Germany after the war. In ideal weather saw fights exciting 25,000 spectators and good services. There were no new records, but annual best performance achieved several times.

07. bikini: Nuclear explosion underwater "World in the movie" brings the original recordings of the second historical nuclear experiment by bikini today.
To this experiment - in which a nuclear bomb for the first time was brought under water explosion - also U-boats above and below water are been laid down in addition to the 87 test ships.
The signal flag goes up. The atomic bomb is sharpened. The last teams leave the target fleet.
On board the American battleship "Mount McKinley" is the head of the undertaking, Admiral Blandy, reported: "all preparations completed. The experiment can begin [...] Minutes before the explosion. The instruments are checked for the last time.
Scientists and cameramen in anticipation of the decisive moment. A few seconds. Fire!
The sea rears up under the force of the explosion and a huge column of water shoots up into the sky. Shortly after the explosion, the water tower was over 3,000 meters high, then he collapsed in gigantic cascade.
Here another shot of the explosion.
Over one million tons of water to deal with tremendous impact on the target ships.
Remote-controlled planes fly over the target area during the experiment. Here the recordings, taken from the built-in camera... Recording an explosion, which is equivalent to the delivery of 50,000 tonnes of dynamite.
Once again the explosion, recorded by an automatic camera of one of the towers on the atoll of bikini.
Titanic force, stands in the sea to the mountains height and then crashes with avalanche force back. An observer later said: "It was like a waterfall of Mars". Hours later--after the dangerous radiation of the sea - after the first attempt control ships approaching. Constantly monitored the radioactivity with the violinist device.
The Japanese battleship "Nagato". It has heavy side and sank a few hours after this recording.
The American aircraft carrier "Saratoga" is hit and falls. In total, 16 ships were destroyed.
Yet an aerial view shows the Titan force of the explosion.
This underwater attempt gave main findings of science. At the same time confirmed it again... the tremendous power of Atomic Energy whose mastery and utilization destination and purpose of the nuclear control Commission of the United Nations.
The leading personality of the Commission, Bernard M. Baruch, were in two sets the leitmotif of their work: "the science we were taught by the harnessing of nuclear power. It is in the area of human duty nuclear power for the good of humanity, Instead of to use to their destruction."
01. Minister President of Canada in Berlin
Canada's Premier Mackenzie King arrives at Gatow airport for a visit to Berlin.
He is welcomed by Air Marshal Sir Sholto Douglas, Supreme Commander of the British Forces in Germany, and by the Canadian Ambassador to Washington, Pearson.
Mackenzie King who for 20 years has held the position of Canadian Minister President views, inspects the remainders of the former Reichskanzlei under the guidance of Lt. Gen. Pope.
Lt. Col. Caird shows him Hitler's air-raid shelter and the spot where Hitler's body was burnt.
In the meantime, Mackenzie King has returned to Canada.
03. Flossenburg trial
In the courtroom of the former Dachau concentration camp, 52 SS guards and capos stand trial before an American military court for murder, ill-treatment, starvation and torturing of the prisoners of the former C.C. of Flossenburg.
Flossenburg camp, situated close to the Czechoslovakian border, was formerly a labour-camp for habitual criminals. Since early 1941 also political prisoners of all nationalities were brought into this camp and the 48 affiliated labour camps.
25.300 prisoners were killed there by execution, ill-treatment and starvation.
When the camp was evacuated shortly before the American troops arrived, 597 prisoners, among them many women, were killed by special order.

This is the third time in the 13 centuries of Monte Cassino's history that the venerable Benedictine monastery was destroyed - to rise again in its former magnitude and splendor.
05. What is the weather going to be?
How are the weather prospects? This question asked daily and hourly and everywhere can now again be answered precisely and reliably. All important German weather stations have resumed full activity. The highest observatory stands on top the Zugspitze, 9.800 ft. above sea-level. In this nearly 50 years old weather station all meteoroligical phenomena such as wind direction, force of the wind, and the rays of the sun are recorded and the findings passed on.
A weather-balloon is released. By means of the radio-probe fixed to the balloon the wind direction and intensity can be measured up to hights of from 45.000 to 60.000 ft.
9.300 ft. lower, on the level of the sea, weather stations are installed, too.
On fireships moored in the coastal waters of the German Sea, besides routine measurements, the currents and the temperature of the ocean are recorded.
These scientific weather forecasters belong to the most important advisors of air traffic and navigation. At every weather station daily some 6.000 weather reports arrive from all over the world. They are evaluated and recorded in the weather map. Thus the weather forecast is composed by the synchronized activity of all weather stations and then is broadcasted by the various radio stations.
06. Frankfort o. M

Atomic explosion under water
"Welt im Film" shows today the original pictures of the second historic atomic experiment of Bikini. During this experiment - for which an atomic bomb was exploded for the first time under water - in addition to the 87 guinea pig ships, submarines are moored under water and on the surface.
The signal flag is hoisted. The mechanism of the atomic bomb is started.
The last crews leave the target fleet.
On board the American battleship "Mount Mc.Kinley" the head of "Operation Crossroads", Admiral Blandy, receives the report: "All preparations finished. The experiment can be started."
Minutes before the blast. The measuring instruments are checked for the last time.
Cameramen and scientists wait for the decisive moment. A few seconds to go. Fire!
The sea surges up from the giant blast and an enormous column of water races skywards. Shortly after the explosion the tower of water is more than 10.000 ft. high and then crashes down in a gigantic cascade. More than one million tons of water strikes the target fleet with shattering force.
During the test pilotless airplanes fly over the target area. These are the photos which were taken by the automatic camera ... pictures of an explosion equaling a blast of 50.000 tons of T.N.T.
Once more the blast, taken by an automatic camera from one of the control towers at Bikini Atoll. Titanic forces hurl the water skyward and then it crashes down like an avalanche. An observer said: "It was like a cataract from Mars."
Hours later - after the dangerous radioactivity of the water had diminished - the first control ships approach the test fleet.
Radioactivity is constantly checked by Geiger-counters.
The Japanese battleship "Nagato" is listing badly and sinks a few hours after these pictures were taken.
The American aircraft carrier "Saratoga" is heavily damaged and sinks. A total of 16 ships was destroyed.
This under-surface experiment is of the utmost importance to the progress of science. Also, it has proved again and decisively the immense elementary power of atomic energy ... the domination and utilization of which is the aim and purpose of the UN Atom Contro1 Commission.
The dominating personality of the Commission, Bernard M. Baruch, has stated in two sentences the theme and motive of its work: "Science has taught us how to use atomic power. It is within the sphere of human duty to use atomic energy for the best of humanity instead for its destruction."
