A day in the life of the Dutch Employment Service for women in camp house "de Algemene Scheleberg" exists of: getting up in a dormitory filled with bunk beds; washing and brushing teeth; flag parade; march in a column; do sports at a jog; stretching exercises; swimming; helping a farmer: driving a horse, binding grain stalks together and the milking of cows.

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
