Czech film archive receives unique shots from 1945





U.S. Ambassador Richard Graber handed over unique documentary film shots from the liberation of the Czech Lands in 1945 to the Czech National Film Archive director Vladimir Opela Friday, on the occasion of the November 11 Veterans Day.

The film, shot by U.S. military amateur photographers, has never been presented in the Czech Republic yet.

Graber said the shots are evidence of the joint U.S.-Czech history connecting both countries, and they enable to preserve the legacy and experience of WWII soldiers for the future.
