Liberation (2004) - 100 minutes

This is the dramatic story of two very different battlefronts during WWII - the allied campaign to liberate Europe, and Hitler's genocidal war against the Jews. Using archival footage, contemporary radio broadcasts and enthralling first-person accounts, Liberation recreates the heady atmosphere of Europe emerging from Nazi domination - in stark contrast to the horrific final days of the Final Solution.

Liberation begins in 1942, when the struggling Allies began envisioning an invasion of Europe. The film reveals the strategies and deceptions on all sides, while vividly depicting the struggle on the battlefield, exploring those fateful years in panoramic detail.

But most of all, this remarkable film documents the compelling stories of the Jews of Europe - their tragedy, courage, resistance and survival - stories you will never forget.

Liberation is the very best in documentary filmmaking. Its powerful insights will resonate with you for years to come. But, most of all, this extraordinary film reminds us to bear witness to those who were lost.

WW2 Jewish escape tunnel uncovered in Lithuania's Ponar forest
A tunnel dug out with spoons by Jewish prisoners escaping Nazi captors in World War Two has been uncovered in Lithuania's Ponar forest. The prisoners were from the so-called Burning Brigade, who were forced to burn corpses to cover up Nazi atrocities as the Soviets advanced. Knowing they too would be killed, they dug a tunnel in a pit where they were kept. Eleven escapees survived the war. A research team used a ground-scanning system to map out the tunnel.
