Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Cracow (in Poland) is one of eastern Europe's oldest, most perfectly preserved and historically interesting medieval cities. Towards the end of the Second World War, in a futile gesture of spitefulness and revenge, the departing German occupying forces planned to dynamite the city and reduce its treasures to rubble. This film tells the exciting story of how Cracow was saved.
