In Hamburg After the War

This documentary clip i found on youtube is remarkable in showing the psychic damage in post war Germany through the lens of Hamburg's red light district -- St Pauli and Der Reeperbahn. It also hints at the chemical foment that would foster the creative muck from which The Beatles rose early in the next decade. It is a quintessential urban archeological and social record captured almost accidentally.
