  • Liberation is a better title.

    The intro of this episode is beautiful with the violins, and it is perfect once we get into it. The story at first is extremely slow, mostly showing one soldier breaking down and whatnot.

    This is also the first episode to which we are treated to a flashback, which isn't nearly as interesting as the scene with the liberation of the Jews in the camp. That was the most haunting scene that stills stays with me, when they arrive at the internment camp. The way the 'real soldiers' describe it is really moving.

    The show begins with the violin and ends with the violin; very, very moving overall.
