Burning Hell: Bombing Holocaust of Hamburg by British Air Force (1943)

Remarkable color film, with graphic images — made by firefighter Hans Brunswig — of the devastating summer 1943 bombing of Hamburg.

IN THIS ferocious aerial attack, some 3,000 British and American aircraft dropped 9,000 tons of bombs, killing 42,600 civilians and wounding 37,000. Many were burned to death or killed by poisonous carbon monoxide gas. Only about half the dead bodies could be identified. This “firestorm” bombing — the first ever — incinerated eight square miles of the city with flames of up to 800 degrees Celsius fanned by winds of 150 mph. More than 250,000 homes and houses were destroyed, as well as 24 hospitals, 277 schools and 58 churches.
