It's 1945, war has been raging in Europe and across the World for six years. The people are desperate, cities have been destroyed, sixty million people have been killed and over twenty five million soldiers injured in battle. After the suicide of Hitler on 30th April 1945 during the Battle of Berlin it seemed like the war was finally coming to an end and his successor Grand Admiral Donitz surrendered unconditionally to Western and Russian demands on 7th May 1945. Huge crowds gathered in London the following day to listen to Churchill's announcement that the devastating war in Europe was finally over. This incredibly rare original Technicolor film, shot by Jack Cardiff OBE, shows the victory celebrations in London on Victory in Europe Day, 8th May 1945 plus the London Victory Celebrations of 1946.
