Potsdam Revisited:
Overture to the Cold War

 

Synopsis

This special event of film and live music will transport the audience back to July 1945 when, amid the ruins of Berlin, Harry Truman, Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin paused to listen to 19-year-old GI Stuart Canin play his violin. "The Rifleman's Violin," a short documentary, tells this story.
