During the Second World War Belgian cinemas were obliged to broadcast a Belgian version of the Auslandswochenschau or Auslandstonwoche (ATW) at every film showing. These news reels were produced by the Reichsministerium fur Volksaujklarung und Propaganda (RMVP) and were specifically meant for distribution abroad. Hence, they should not be confused with the Deutsche Wochenschau (DW) in the Third Reich. The news reels shown in occupied Belgium were part of an international production and distribution network, with which the German Ministry of Propaganda tried to create a monopoly on news reels.
