Finding Elizabeth's Soldiers

Episode 1 of 1

The 2013 documentary Portraits For The Homefront: The Story of Elizabeth Black first introduced viewers to Elizabeth Black, a Pittsburgh artist who sketched charcoal portraits of American soldiers across Europe during World War II. Her story lives on in the follow-up documentary FINDING ELIZABETH'S SOLDIERS. This half-hour sequel explores efforts to find homes for dozens of soldiers' sketches found among Elizabeth's memorabilia. Through detailed searches, detective work and the kindness of volunteer genealogists and other researchers, WQED in Pittsburgh is working to find the soldiers and/or their survivors. From Philadelphia to San Francisco and points in between, the film features encounters with both amazed and appreciative families.
