1945: The Savage Peace

When the Second World War ended, the people of liberated Europe celebrated their freedom from Nazi tyranny. Their years of suffering had ended, but for millions of Germans, the end of the conflict opened a new and terrible chapter. The Savage Peace reveals the appalling violence meted out to the defeated, especially to those ethnic Germans who had lived peacefully for centuries in neighbouring countries. Using rare and unseen archive film, the documentary tells a harrowing story of vengeance against German civilians, which mirrored some of the worst cruelty of the Nazi occupiers during the years of war. The Savage Peace includes the unique testimony of eyewitnesses and victims, who recall the horrors with searing clarity, theirmemories undimmed 70 years after the events took place. This a story that has, until now, been untold amidst the justified celebration of an end to an unspeakable tyranny. But as the writer George Orwell said, the treatment of the defeated Germans was a terrible crime that has gone unpunished. UD Admin Note: This is a BBC program that aired in late May 2015.  It&;s interesting that it aired right after independent author Tom Goodrich and independent film maker Kyle Hunt released ; The Real Genocide of Nazi Germany on May 1st 2015 and a couple of years after Dennis Wise released ; The Greatest Story Never Told.  It appears that a mainstream media source has finally had the courage to cover both sides of World War Two.  Or perhaps these independent efforts have blown the lid off of the story and the establishment is seeking to allow some inquiry and discussion of the truth, to keep the narrative under their guidance and control.
