Ann Major recently decided to digitize her grandfather’s movies. That’s when she found a little surprise.
One of the films happens to include footage of Adolf Hitler at a military parade. Her grandfather Ralph H. Major was an American doctor teaching medicine in Munich in the 1930s, when he captured the scene.
“People were watching the parade. There wasn’t a lot of saluting him or applause,” says Ann Major, a history department administrator at the University of California, Los Angeles. “Seeing the film was eerie.”
