Storyline

Liberation tells the dramatic story of the battle waged on two fronts during World War II - the Allied campaign to liberate Europe and Hitler's genocidal campaign against the Jews. The World War II documentary uses film footage, radio broadcasts, and period music gathered from archives around the world. Interwoven throughout the film are the compelling stories of the Jews of Europe - unforgettable stories of tragedy, courage, resistance, and survival. Liberation begins in 1942, when Adolf Hitler was still at the height of his power and the Allies began envisioning a cross-channel invasion of Europe. The film takes you behind the scenes to illuminate the strategies and deceptions for the combatants on all sides - from America's and Britain's Home Front to wartime London, Moscow, Washington, D.C., and occupied Paris to Berlin.

Liberation
30 September 2008 | by blueindigo-1See all my reviews

I am sorry I cannot give an opinion about the movie. However the comment made about it is deeply deceiving to me. I guess that this is a young person, the one who made the comment. I feel very sorry to see that he/she gives an opinion about it on the basis of artwork. The only feelings referred are, about how it has affected the lives of friends. But there is not a single comment only about the atrocities committed in the dead fields of Germany (which is, I believe, what the documentary is about). The huge crime the Holocaut was! Did the teachers show it having in mind the artistic performances or was it to show the young ones how their ancestors were killed in the fields, or why many American GI's died in the European Continent to destroy the evil of a dictatorship?
