These films encourage us to think about the ethics of war. Their subjects include prisoners of war and concentration camps, the bombing of civilians, the atomic bomb, racism and segregation, and the practice of sending soldiers into hopeless battles. Also, witnesses and participants in profound events revisit the past and return to places where they spent the war. These films offer a critical, contemporary and essential look at the Second World War.
