Interviews

We offer you interviews with American and Belgian veterans who in 1945 participated in the liberation of Pilsen and other sites in western Bohemia. A few minutes of interviews were filmed in 2013 and 2014, at a time when veterans visited the traditional Liberation Festival in Pilsen. Eyewitnesses them remember their service in the army, telling the experiences of the war, and their return to Pilsen.
