Drawing from the collections of the Austrian Film Museum, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for History and Society, the Ephemeral Films Project: National Socialism in Austria has digitized and annotated 50 ephemeral films from the Nazi occupation of Austria. Ephemeral films - that is films "with a limited purpose" that "were not meant to endure" - include "amateur, institutional, industrial, and educational" snippets that provide rich insight into Austria before and during the German occupation. The innovation behind this project, and what makes it unique, is the fact that these films are annotated scene by scene, with maps and current photographic overlay. Readers may peruse the How-To Guide before moving on to Explore Films where they may view the films themselves, time capsules that display a complex and lost world.
