Some of the video was fimed in the Herbert's Peace and Reconciliation gallery. The gallery features key objects and artworks from the museum's collection, including John Piper's iconic painting of the ruins of Coventry Cathedral on the morning after the Blitz. There are also many fascinating personal stories of the Coventry Blitz and experiences of conflict in other parts of the world. Together they tell this poignant and unique part of Coventry's history.
