  • Description

    Titles read: "INTER-ALLIED CONFERENCE IN LONDON".

    London.

    Various shots around a conference table at St James' Palace of the representatives of nine countries that have been overrun by the Axis. Anthony Eden opens the conference. Polish Prime Minister General Sikorski presides. Prime Minister Hubert Pierlot of Belgium and General Charles de Gaulle are also present along with representatives from Greece and Norway.

    Polish Ambassador to Britain Count Raczynsky reads a speech outlining the effect of the Nazis on Poland, the amount of people who have been killed in concentration camps and the misery inflicted by the aggressor. He says "The final victory of the Allies will find its measure in the reparation of the wrongs inflicted and the punishment of the offences committed individually or collectively".

    Brief shot of men leaving the conference table when the talks have finished.

    Note: Raczynsky's speech is out of synch and will need to be adjusted if used.
