Storyline

Liberation tells the dramatic story of the battle waged on two fronts during World War II - the Allied campaign to liberate Europe and Hitler's genocidal campaign against the Jews. The World War II documentary uses film footage, radio broadcasts, and period music gathered from archives around the world. Interwoven throughout the film are the compelling stories of the Jews of Europe - unforgettable stories of tragedy, courage, resistance, and survival. Liberation begins in 1942, when Adolf Hitler was still at the height of his power and the Allies began envisioning a cross-channel invasion of Europe. The film takes you behind the scenes to illuminate the strategies and deceptions for the combatants on all sides - from America's and Britain's Home Front to wartime London, Moscow, Washington, D.C., and occupied Paris to Berlin. From Churchill to Roosevelt, from Stalin to de Gaulle, to the Nazi leaders - to the battlefields alongside generals and ordinary soldiers - the film's panoramic ... Written by Anonymous

Poorly Conceived
2 March 2010 | by (Poconos, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Cannot think of a documentary I have seen that had a harder time deciding where it was going to go. The title suggests it will concentrate on WWII's immediate aftermath, but at least half of LIBERATION is a cursory chronicle of the beginning and duration of the war. There's a section, narrated by Whoopi of course, about American racial prejudice that comes and goes without any tie-in to the rest of the movie, likewise another segment about popular song and culture during WWII. Of course the camps are highlighted but its difficult to say that the title concerns their liberation; e.g., the choice of title might just mean general liberation from oppression. This is undergraduate level work at best.
