Pathe News: Rudolf Höss handed by Americans to Poles in 1946

Found! An old Pathe News clip from 1946 of the Kommandant of Auschwitz being handed over by the Americans to the Polish authorities.

This is after he provided testimony to Nuremberg Trials. He is wearing the prison clothes   given to him by the British. The Polish soldiers can be seen in the background smirking. 

Rudolf Höss can be seen at  00:52 mins in the film after he has disembarked from the plane.

The notes on the clip say it was taken 18 June 1946, though Kommandant was handed over in April 1946.
