Large scale model in Museum Boijmans which shows how the city of Rotterdam will look in the future. On the walls are detailed maps of the situation. The crowd walks by.

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.
