Footage from French POWs inside Nazi internment camps

Leave a comment

The BBC has an incredible story about a 30-minute documentary shot in secret by French POWs in WWII, including about a minute of footage.  They had the pieces of an 8mm camera smuggled into the camp inside sausages, assembled and concealed the camera in a book in the prison library, and then smuggled reels of film out inside the soles of their shoes when they escaped.  The footage details life in the camp and their escape, the biggest successful prison camp breakout of WWII.
