61 years ago today: the bombing of dresden

Depending on the estimates you believe, between 25,000 and 140,000 civilians, mostly women and children, perished during the allied (mostly British) bombing raid of this German city on Feb. 13 and 14, 1945. (I'll consider the Nazi propaganda estimates of 400,000+ killed as unreliable). This shows warfare at its ugliest - deliberate killing of civilians located in a non-military target.

A new, supposedly "balanced" German film set during the Dresden bombing made its debut at the European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival.
