Trümmerfrauen (literally translated as ruins women or rubble women) is the German-language name for women who, in the aftermath of World War II helped clear and reconstruct the bombed cities. The fascinating colored films were shot in Berlin in June 1945 by a film team directed by William Wyler.

Sandra Kulbach was born in Munich and studied at the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF). Her passion for film was ignited by her extensive travels around the world.
Sandra was inspired by her own children to create these beautiful images for Framepool.
Muhammad Ali was the ‘Greatest of all Time’ , Pelé was simply called ‘O Rei’ (The King), but Babe Ruth was the ‘Sultan of Swat’. He slammed 714 home runs over the fence, his career Slugging Percentage is still unbeaten.
Babe ‘The Bambino’ Ruth won 4 World Series with the New York Yankees. After he was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Yankees, he caused a 86-year period for the Sox without winning any title, the so-called ‘Curse of the Bambino’. There were Yankee players like Yogi Berra or Joe DiMaggio, who won more World Series, but the old Yankee Stadium owned the nickname ‘The House That Ruth Built’ for many years. His earned titles in the early 1920ies made Ruth a national, maybe world wide icon.
On May 30, 1935 he had his last Major League plate appearance for the Boston Braves and became one year later one of the first Hall of Famers in Baseball.

Dachau became one of the largest Concentration camps in Germany, a mere metropolis of death. It served as a prototype and model for other Nazi concentration camps. Established by the Nazis in March 1933, the Dachau concentration camp was “the first concentration camp for political prisoners” as Heinrich Himmler stated. It is located on the grounds of a former munitions factory near Dachau, about 16 kilometers (10 miles) northwest of Munich. Almost every community in Germany had members taken away to these camps. Newspapers continually reported the removal to concentration camps of the enemies of “the Reich” – what means opponents to the Nazi dictatorship.

About 3 years ago I was contacted by Mary Riley about having Framepool represent their Oscar winning collections. We were of course floored! With 5 Academy Award nominations and 2 Oscar wins, the Theatrical Short Subject Series were produced from 1935 to 1950 and premiered as one of Paramount Pictures biggest theatrical feature films of the day.

Autumn is here. The time of the year when nature is bursting with magical colors. The sun is shinning in a completely different angle through the leaves allowing for many possibilities to capture the beautiful images and we have done just that in our Autumn Showreel.
