The first German mother school in the Netherlands
Week number: 41-15
Newsreels in which Dutch subjects of a certain week are presented.
The national socialist ogranisation "Deutsches Frauenwerk" opens its first so-called "Mütterschule" in Amsterdam, where women and girls are taught how to raise children and run their household. SHOTS: - young women with white aprons in different educational situations; - young children play with toys in a classroom, while their mothers are taught how to sew, cook, tinker and change and feed a baby elsewhere in the school.
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.
