Description

By late April 1945 Berlin had been completely surrounded by the advancing Red Army. Naming the famous Government Reichstag building as the ‘symbol’ of the capture of the city, Stalin had demanded the hammer and sickle be flown from its roof before the 1st May Soviet celebrations. Over a period of four days, incredibly intense fighting raged around the building. Using veteran testimony, contemporary archive film and photography alongside modern drone, satellite, aerial, and on location footage this tour will take you back in time to explore that famous episode.

Fascinating glimpse into the actual site around the Reichstag using both modern and archival photos and videos. Excellent narration. Professionally done.

Great material!
Small nitpick:at 22:28 when TV tower is mentioned, the place is wrong. TV tower stands at Alexanderplatz, not Potsdamerplatz.
BTW. Loved the tour over the city and visuals how the battle place looked at that time!
