Title Das Drama Von Dresden, A Documentary
Director: Sebastian Dehnhardt
Awards: International Emmy (2005) & the Magnolia Award (2006)

The baroque city of Dresden, known as the Florence of the Elb because of its magnificent buildings, was one of the few German cities to have been largely spared Allied bombing during the Second World War, but in just 24 hours the city was reduced to rubble. At least 25,000 people suffered agonizing deaths in the fire-storms which swept the city. The film provides a dramatic account of these tragic events, from the perspective of both the inhabitants of Dresden & also the British bomber pilots who mounted the air raid on the city. They were all part of a tragedy which left nobody victorious.
