At the Coolsingel in Rotterdam is a building which houses a mediation bureau for workers that want to work in Germany. SHOTS: - ext.; - men in the waiting room and at the information desk; - two workers have a mediation conversation with a (Dutch speaking German?) official and sign a work contract.

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.
