A.W. Faber-Castell: Jeden Tag 150.000 Bleistifte

These stills are from a 1946 newsreel of the A.W. Faber-Castell factory in Stein, Germany. Current factory managers might smile at the title — Every Day 150,000 Pencils — but in 1946 simply having a working factory might have been miracle enough. It would take some years before businesses in the American Zone of occupation would be permitted to resume production, and for some, even longer before they were permitted to export their goods outside of Germany.
