The True Story of Lili Marlene & Before the Raid
[PDC2033] - 1 in Stock
Marius Goring narrates Humphrey Jennings' film of the extraordinary story of Lale Andersen, the singer whose recording of Lili Marlene became a battle song for troops on both sides in World War II. Goebbels detested the song and contrived to have Andersen placed in a concentration camp. In Britain the song was sung by Anne Shelton and Vera Lynn.
Also features Before The Raid another true story of Norwegian fishermen repelling German soldiers who were plundering their catch from their small fishing village. Filmed in Portmahomack. Directed by Jiri Weiss. (Pal)
