The UFA Motion Picture Newsreels depict German military operations and conditions in Germany during World War II, mainly during
the 1939 to 1942 period.
Universum Film AG (UFA) is a German film production company that was founded in 1917. Initially envisioned as a state-controlled
vehicle for military propaganda films, UFA greatly expanded its output in 1918 to include feature films, documentaries, newsreels,
and public service films. With a broadened focus that was further spurred on by the 1921 privatization of the company, UFA
made an especially significant impact on world cinema during the Weimar Republic era (1919-1933), most notably through its
German Expressionist films.
