The End of the War in Colour: Episode II – The Americans at the Elbe

On April 27, US units and the Red Army celebrate “Elbe Day”, the first gathering of their troops near Torgau: “East meets West”. Dozens of camera teams are on site – including George Stevens and the men from “Special Film Project 186”. In this part of Nazi Germany, the Wehrmacht is in disintegration. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers go into American captivity. But the GIs remain distant, many of them having already seen the horror of the concentration camps with their own eyes.
