William Howell Wells, a former official with the Information Department of OPA and current Director of Film Production for UNRRA, discusses conditions, as he saw them, in Greece, and in Europe as a whole, after WWII. Among stories of rationing and food and supply shortages, he tells a story about discovering a hidden Nazi documentary about the destruction of a Greek canal.
