Voices of War consists of three separate compilations of excerpts from audio interviews held in IWM’s rich sound archive. This trilogy of unique testimonies reveals personal responses and first-hand memories, from Prime Minister Winston Churchill to prisoners of war and civilians, to the three major milestones that led to the end of the Second World War. From intense celebration to vast desolation, the 75th anniversaries of VE Day, VJ Day and the dropping of the atomic bombs will allow a 21st century audience to reflect on what victory really meant for people in factories and fields, and in hospitals and homes around the world in 1945.
