Bratislava and the Second World War

08. 04. 2015 15:58

April 4, 2015 marks 70 years since the Red Army liberated Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia, from German control. To commemorate this event, we took cameras along to interviews which are normally reserved for radio alone. From the deportation of the city's Jewish residents, to bombing raids, to the arrival of battle-weary Soviet troops, this was a war which affected everyone in every corner of the city, with this bi-lingual video providing an insight into life during the Second World War, as told by those Bratislava residents who survived it. Therefore we hope you enjoy this video and find it educational and entertaining. Likewise, we invite you to tune in to Radio Slovakia International for more in-depth interviews and features on this topic.
