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. From Churchill to Roosevelt, from Stalin to de Gaulle, to the Nazi leaders - to the battlefields alongside generals and ordinary soldiers - the film's panoramic ... Written by Anonymous

Omgoshly Worth It!
16 August 2006 | by mochagurl1990See all my reviews

I watched this in school during history class.It really made me think of the loss during the holocaust. It was deep and passionate and great for us students to watch.Teachers, I highly recommend this!Its great for us teens to relate to.Ben Kingsley does a great job in setting the mood, and he keeps you focused.I love the real life look into the lives of the people who survived and the death camps now.Its a bit slow sometimes but its totally worth it for the experience it grants you.My friends said they loved it and it effected how they look on life.So if you really want a good look into the holocaust or a teacher who wants to show their class the effects about the holocaust, this is definitely the movie for you.
