Added DiffLines:

''Siege'' is a 1940 documentary short film (10 minutes) directed and photographed by Julien Bryan.

It is a visual record of the siege of Warsaw, at the beginning of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Bryan arrived in Warsaw on September 7, after the Polish government and all the rest of the foreign press had evacuated. He was the last journalist from a neutral country in the city. For two weeks Bryan, accompanied only by his interpreter, filmed the death and devastation being wreaked on Warsaw as the Germans approached. He eventually made it out of Warsaw along with other residents of neutral nations, concealing his film in a gas mask container.

!!Tropes:

* AbandonedHospital: One segment has Bryan visiting a hospital that was hurriedly evacuated when German bombs started falling. Rubble, shattered windows, and abandoned medical equipment is everywhere. He eventually finds the women from the maternity ward still cowering in the cellar along with their infants.
* {{Narrator}}: The film opens with Bryan at a desk talking about his experience; he then narrates the rest of his film.
* SceneryGorn: The massive destruction wrought by the Luftwaffe (the German Air Force) on Warsaw. Fires, giant bomb craters, empty shells of buildings.
* TheSiege: A harrowing real one, as Warsaw is surrounded and mercilessly bombed by the Luftwaffe.
* WarIsHell: Yes, yes it is.
