Liberation Heroes: The Last Eyewitnesses
Vanessa Roth, 42 minutes, USA
LIBERATION HEROES: THE LAST EYEWITNESSES explores what can happen when insidious hatred remains unchecked. Through firsthand testimony of WWII liberators and liberation witnesses, from Steven Spielberg’s USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive, stark parallels between the past and present are revealed. As Nazis march again in broad daylight and xenophobic, racist and antisemitic attitudes reemerge, the film serves as a cautionary tale from the greatest generation to heed their warning and take a stand against hate.
