Video: Undeveloped Film Rolls from WWII Discovered

Posted January 28, 2015 by Amanda | No Comment

Can you image discovering rare, undeveloped photographs from WWII and then being the first person to ever view them? Recently, photographer Levi Bettweiser made such a discovery after coming across 31 undeveloped rolls of film shot by a soldier during World War II.

Bettweiser launched the Rescued Film Project in an effort to find and rescue old and undeveloped rolls of film. In 2014, he found the undeveloped batch of rolls at an auction in Ohio. Other than the labels with location names on half the rolls, Bettweiser had no idea who originally owned them.

Watch the video below to see how he recovered these lost treasures from WWII:
