The Long Way Home
Winner of the 1997 Academy Award® for Best Feature Documentary
May 1945 - Germany has been defeated by the Allies and the war in Europe is officially over. American, British, and Russian soldiers have liberated the Nazi death camps in Central and Eastern Europe, uncovering to the world the horror and tragedy of the Holocaust. Thousands of starving, half-dead Jewish survivors are freed from Nazi persecution. The majority have lost most, if not all of their family members. Most are forced to live in so-called Displaced Persons Camps overseen by the Allies often in the same location as the death camps. The few who try to return home are met with anti-Semitism and threats of physical violence. Legal immigration to the United States and other countries is very difficult. For a large number of the survivors, the only place they want to go is Eretz Yisrael—British controlled Palestine. But Great Britain has severely limited the number of Jews who can come legally. Their only choice is to make their way illegally from Europe to Palestine. This is the story The Long Way Home.
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.
