User Reviews

Finally we are able to see how the war really was: in colour
19 April 2000 | by action-6See all my reviews

D-day to Berlin is a very special documentary. Almost for the first time we are able to see the horrors of World War 2 like it was for the people who experienced it: in colour. We follow the American troops from d-day in june `44, until they stand in Berlin in may `45. We see the horrors of the war in a way, which we have never been able to see before. We see dead people lying along the roads, dead people in the concentration-camps, dead Wehrmacht-troops, dead civilians, dead Americans and all the pain, which was present during the war. But we also get to see the real joy of the people who were liberated from the Nazi-regime. This is a unique unique colour film, and don`t refuse to see it.

DON`T FORGET HISTORY....................
