« Group Captives, by Henry Faulk: The Re-education of German Prisoners of War (POWs) in Britain after the Second World War | Main | Questions and Answers »



This is so interesting.
I am researching life for expellees from Breslau who ended up in the British zone. It is an uphill task.
I must try to get hold of a copy of this film.
The post war experience seems much over shadowed by the actual war - though the aftermath was almost as appalling.

I would be very interested to know where you can get hold of the Jennings film. I have not come across it.

Interesting German language material I am currently reading (as a former Hamburg resident) includes Bahnsen/von Stuermer "Die Stadt, die leben wollte," dealing with the final days of the war and the British entry into the city.

As far as I know the film has not been released on DVD, but you can view it over the web on "Moving History" http://www.movinghistory.ac.uk/archives/iw/films/iw6defeated.html or (if you are a subscriber) via Screenonline http://www.screenonline.org.uk/film/id/711414/index.html
You can also arrange to see it at the Imperial War Museum in London, by making an appointment to do so with their Film Archive.

I would be most interested to find a DVD copy of this film. I currently completing my second volume of memoirs which pertain to my RAF service in in Hamburg, from May 1945-47. Living conditions, in Hamburg, for most Germans were abysmal.
