Outside of an employment bureau in Leeuwarden a sign with a job vacancy in France is put up; men read it; they enter the bureau; sign the papers; have a conversation with a doctor; walk to the station; say goodbye to their relatives and leave by train.

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
