Pre-war Rally, 1937

A page from one of Bryan’s 22 original contact print booklets on Nazi Germany showing a unit of the DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront, or German Labor Service) marching with shovels on the Zeppelin Field during a rally at the 1937 Reichsparteitag (Reich Party Day) in Nuremberg. Bryan contributed film material to eleven “March of Time” episodes, including Inside Nazi Germany (1938), which was one of the few newsreels to directly and critically examine Nazi Germany and highlight the persecution of the Jews. This image appears in that newsreel. There are approximately 100 contact print booklets in the Julien Bryan Collection. These horizontal staple-bound books contain 8 to 12 pages with 3 black and white thumbnails per page. Each cover is labeled in Bryan’s handwriting with location, year and film number and many of the individual photographs are labeled with the frame number.
