The Long Way Home is a documentary that analyzes the struggles of the Jewish population in the years leading up to and surmounting the end of World War II. After a brutal Holocaust in the name of eugenics, they are finally free of Nazi oppression. However, this gives rise to yet another multitude of problems. Many survivors are relocated to Displaced Persons camps until better accommodations can be found. With the political backing of many of the allied forces, they are finally given the promised land of Israel. Narration by Morgan freeman offers viewers a clear overview of the sociocultural impacts of the topic. There is also much discussion on the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts that arise out of these decisions. With primary source documentation and archival footage, viewers are given a rare glimpse into the lives of such an oppressed population, which has been made to endure countless physical and mental adversity even after the war.
