It was the end of the worst conflict the world has ever known.
These and the other the film footage from the end of the war are historically significant.
What did ordinary people that lived through it have to say? These would be very candid conversations between people that had no idea anyone would ever know what they said. The complete opposite of an interview by a journalist that is asking leading questions.
This was more than just the routine day-to-day events during the war. It was over and they were still alive.
It would be just as significant if not more than than They Shall Not Grow Old.

my theory I keep insisting that in this part of the filming it is LGG with her boyfriend/husband or lover, it is her for me since she has her hair tied, it is true that it is not the clothes that we see later but it is clear that the clothes that alarece in the row is not hers and apart from the older woman she is the only woman who appears in the group who were later beaten and killed, it is my theory

Yes, this is it. LGG was trying to look like a male and it was known that retreating German forces would do this to hide women from view for a host of reasons. To take it a step further the group they were marching with was stopped by the Czechs to look for SS. The small group of SS officers trying to blend into this group made a run for it and there was a pursuit, shoot out, and maybe even hostages taken. These details were known and is was also known that a small group of SS broke off from a larger column trying to flee. These are in Czech police reports. I believe the Germans off camera were what was left of this group. They prob surrendered or made it to an American unit. LGG had injuries that look like a rifle butt hit her, so I think she was not killed intentionally but let go. To positively identify her it will be necessary to identify someone in close proximity to her that day and work backwards.

If you write about it long enough, then all these assumptions become self-aware, and that's exactly the problem.

Ignorance, guesswork, speculation, where will it all end..? :?

No. That is not her. Any other theories?
