Buehl is a town in the state of Baden, Germany. On Kristallnacht, November 9-10, 1938, the town's synagogue went up in flames and Jewish stores were vandalized.
The footage was taken by a firefighter who shot films for a hobby. He took the footage in order to capture his friends during their work. The firefighters were prepared to put out the flames to ensure that the fire would not spread to the neighboring homes next to the synagogue.
