Bismarck Survivor Interviews

Post by Mark_HistoryHit » Fri May 14, 2021 10:38 am


I hope you are all well. I am making a 2 part documentary for the online history channel History Hit about the Bismarck action for the 80th anniversary this year.

The film is almost complete - but i have been struggling to find any recordings of interviews with German survivors of the action. I have been in contact with the Imperial War Museum in London, but they don't have digital copies of the interview with Otto Peters and their digitising machine is currently broken.

This forum has been so useful for getting information about the action for the film and now I wonder if you might be able to help with one final search.

If anyone knows of where i can get hold of any interviews, audio or video of any survivors from the Bismarck then i would be extremely grateful.

Thank you very much,
