Sixty years ago, in the spring of 1945, Allied forces liberating Europe found evidence of atrocities which have tortured the world's conscience ever since. As the troops entered the German concentration camps, they made a systematic film record of what they saw. Work began in the summer of 1945 on the documentary, but the film was left unfinished. FRONTLINE found it stored in a vault of London's Imperial War Museum and, in 1985, broadcast it for the first time using the title the Imperial War Museum gave it, "Memory of the Camps."

The Great War : and the shaping of the 20th century( Visual )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the effect of World War I on the twentieth century. The World War of 1914-1918, the Great War, was the first of the man-made disasters of the twentieth century. In many ways it was without precedent. Never had the battlefield been so vast, whether in the trenches, in the sky, or on and in the seas. Never had a war reached so deeply into the lives of people so far away from the battlefield. The shock waves generated by this cataclysmic event are felt to this day, as this dramatic narrative makes vividly clear. Here is. presented a history of world war in a new way. The military flow of the conflict - from the invasion of Belgium in the summer of 1914 to the collapse of Germany in the autumn of 1918 - is followed throughout. But these epic events are rendered with fresh insights by the interweaving of the cultural history of the time - the hopes and dreams, the ideas and aspirations, the exhilaration and despair, both of those remote from power and of those who led them. This is a. journey into the intense personal experiences of people trying to make sense of war on a scale the world had never seen. Like the acclaimed television series that it accompanies, The Great War pays special attention to the troubling aftermath of the war: the emergence of new nations amid old and festering problems; how the victims and survivors dealt with loss and disfigurement, guilt and hatred; and the terrible legacy of brutality that has marked so much of the. twentieth century
Lee Miller : a woman's war by Lee Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller photographed innumerable women during her career, first as a fashion photographer and then as a journalist during the Second World War, documenting the social consequences of the conflict, particularly the impact of the war on women across Europe. Her work as a war photographer is perhaps that for which she is best remembered; in fact, she was among the 20th century's most important photographers on the subject. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, Lee Miller: A Womans War tells the story beyond the battlefields of the Second World War by way of Miller's extraordinary photographs of the women whose lives were affected. Introductions by Hilary Roberts and Antony Penrose, Lee Miller's son, precede Miller's work, which is divided into chronological chapters. Miller's photographs, many previously unpublished, are accompanied by extended captions that place the images within the context of women's roles within the landscape of war

Shaped by war by Don McCullin( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British photojournalist McCullin's best-known images, which are included in this retrospective of his entire career, stem from wars of the 1960s and 1970s in the Congo, Cyprus, Vietnam, and Lebanon. A companion to a contemporary exhibit staged by Britain's Imperial War Museum, the tome contains text that somewhat overlaps with McCullin's autobiography (Unreasonable Behavior, 1992), but there are far more photographs included here. Word and picture initially explain how McCullin began, as a film developer in the Royal Air Force. Returned to civilian life in the late 1950s, he broke into photojournalism with street scenes of London and eventually was hired by the prestigious London Sunday Times, for which he took a picture that has assumed iconic status in Vietnam War imagery, in which a battle-weary U.S. Marine looks through the camera with a thousand-yard stare. McCullin describes the circumstances of its composition, as he does those of most photos reproduced here, typically reflecting on his feelings about covering combat and the risks he incurred
