Race to Victory: WWII Europe
Race to Victory: WWII Europe 1 x 60'
By January 1945, it’s apparent Nazi Germany will be defeated. But instead of winding down, the war enters its bloodiest, most chaotic phase. As allies close in, everything accelerates. Rare color footage reveals the horrors of POWs, the utter destruction of entire cities, and the close-up faces of citizens caught in a war. Historians help us dissect key moments, and first person recollections paint pictures that sear the experience into memory. When the fighting climaxes at the epicenter of the Third Reich, the walls close in around Hitler. His suicide triggers a chaotic transfer of power, culminating in a clumsy surrender. The world exhales on May 8 - Victory in Europe Day. Soldiers and citizens take this one day to live out that first day of freedom from tyranny. Everyone remembers where they were and what they did. 75 years later, we give those stories new life.
