For VE Day, Watch This Technicolor Film of Berlin, Two Months After World War II On the 70th anniversary of VE Day, a remarkable film shows Berliners cleaning up a city in ruin. These days, Berlin is a nexus of 21st-century cool. New York magazine recently called it the “post-tourist capital of Europe,” capturing the trend of younger visitors coming for multi-month stays, drawn by its surplus of affordable housing, dining, and culture. In the wake of a uniquely tumultuous century for the city, Berlin has captured the world’s imagination in a way that would have been unthinkable just 15 years ago. But its scars are still visible. Today, on the 70th anniversary of VE Day—the end of World War II in Europe—bullet wounds and crumbled walls still stand as reminders of a horrific past that can feel distant in its now-trendy saloons. In rare, high-quality technicolor, we see Berliners moving about a city blasted to pieces.

Rare Film of Sculptor Auguste Rodin Working at his Studio in Paris (1915) In the past few days we’ve featured a series of remarkable little films of French artists Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. Today we wrap things up with just one more: a rare glimpse of the great sculptor Auguste Rodin. The footage was taken in 1915, two years before Rodin’s death. There are several sequences. The first shows the artist at the columned entrance to an unidentified structure, followed by a brief shot of him posing in a garden somewhere. The rest of the film, beginning at the 53-second mark, was clearly shot at the palatial, but dilapidated, Hôtel Biron, which Rodin was using as a studio and second home. The mansion was built as a private residence in the early 18th century, and served as a Catholic school for girls from 1820 until about 1904, when it became illegal for public money to be used for religious education.
