Documentary film by Jiří Boudník

 Each May, the people of Pilsen, Czech Republic, celebrate the end of WWII and their liberation by the Americans.
This short film documents the 60th anniversary in 2005, using rare interviews, 1945 vintage footage, and represents a permanent document of the faithful days, which were burnished in the memories of the Czech people, yet couldn’t be publicly recounted during the Communist regime.



“I remember that, when I was a boy, the teacher would tell us how the Russians liberated Czechoslovakia. I also remember my father telling me how he, as a boy, tasted chocolate for the first time in his life.”
