Return to Dresden
Film  (27:43) 1986, director: Martin Duckworth
Description
In 1945, the Bomber Commands of Great Britain and the United States organized a bombing raid that devastated the ancient city of Dresden. On February 13, 1985, exactly forty years after its destruction, the city celebrated its renaissance with the re-opening of one of the most beautiful opera houses in Europe. One of the guests at this gala was the Canadian navigator of one of the bomber planes, returning to Dresden on a mission of peace that brought him face-to-face with the people who were once his enemies.
