WWII through the lens of a war cameraman (VIDEO)

Russia’s WWII cameraman told about his work at the frontline

Of the 258 Soviet war cameramen active during WWII, only two of them are still alive. And only one still lives in Russia: 95-year-old Boris Sokolov. He told RBTH how he coped with fear and how he “shot” with a camera, not a gun.
