Animation of the Day: Clip from a World War II-Era German Luger

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory (VCL)



Today’s animation is a clip from a German Luger that was confiscated from the commander of a surrendering Nazi unit by General William Collier. It was provided for scanning by his  great granddaughter, VCU student Carson Collier. In addition to fighting in World War II, General Collier also served in World War I and the Korean War. The digital model was created by VCL Digital Curation Supervisor Lauren Volkers. The German Luger’s animation can be found here.
