Liberation, a 1994 documentary, transports viewers to war-torn Europe in the 1940s. Narrators Ben Kingsley, Patrick Stewart, and Whoopi Goldberg describe the liberation efforts that began in 1942 as the Allied Forces fought to free Europe from the clutches of Hitler. Even as the Allies plotted to attack Hitler, Nazi forces systematically eradicated Jews across the continent. Using newsreel footage, music from the era, and radio broadcasts, the narrators present images of London, Washington, D.C., Paris, Berlin, and Moscow. Strategies of Roosevelt, Churchill, de Gaulle, Stalin, and the Nazi leaders are all detailed and analyzed. Presented along with the accounts of the various military leaders are narratives of soldiers in the trenches and civilians in their everyday lives. Dramatic and tragic stories of Jews across Europe illustrate their courage and determination to survive. At the conclusion of the film, footage is shown as Paris, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and the death camps are all liberated, culminating in V-E day. Liberation was first aired at the Berlin, Deauville and Seattle International Film Festivals.moreless
