Beskrivelse:Documentation of movement sequences of sick children. Since the topic is similar to "BLUTWÄSCHE BEI EINEM HUND", the film was probably made at the same time. The doctor could be Prof. Dr. Hans Koeppe, director and founder of the Giessen Children's Hospital, which opened in 1912. According to Prof. Dr. Bernd A. Neubauer (Center for Pediatrics and Youth Medicine at the University Hospital Gießen) the images show the following clinical pictures: West syndrome, spastic diplegia, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis in infancy, myopathy, hemiparesis of the legs, Duchenne muscle dystrophy. Since the 1910s, Oskar Barnack, the inventor of the Leica, has captured events around Wetzlar on film with his self-constructed film camera. He documented flood disasters, city festivals, medical experiments, sporting events and the company where he was employed as chief designer: the Optical Works Ernst Leitz in Wetzlar. His films form the basis of a film archive in which local history has the same place as the effects of great historical events.
