Documentary about the making of a 1945 film by director Alfred Hitchcock about the liberation of Europe by Allied forces. Commissioned by Sidney Bernstein, chief of the Psychological Warfare section of the Supreme Headquarters of Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF), the film looks deep into what went on in the infamous German concentration camps. As it was deemed unsuitable to show at the time, it was stored away in the vaults of the Imperial War Museum (IWM) and found 40 years later by an American researcher. Now, fully restored by the IWM's Dr. Toby Haggith, the footage is ready to be shown to audiences and this documentary tells the story of the lost film.

Documentary about the Blockade of Leningrad during World War II. The film presents an emotional picture of the struggle of some survivors, whose personal memories tend to be overshadowed by the heroic myth held up by the authorities. That myth is in painful contrast with the horrific truth they were forbidden to mention all these years.
The works published here were drawn from the National Library of Russia, the library of Moscow State University, and private collections. Together they form an intense image of how art inspired, warned, instructed, and mobilized people during the country's ordeal of invasion and partial occupation. The compiler outlines the ways in which graphic artists reacted to events on the front, shaped the behavior and mood in the rear, and warded off despair and panic with forecasts of ultimate victory. The style of the works themselves varies: some works contain vestiges of the experiments of the avant-garde; others embrace the vogue of socialist realism. The large format enables reader to feel the impact of the actual posters. -- Summary written by John W. Emerich, Bronze Horseman Literary Agency.
