10 Days To D-Day
This film unfolds day-by-day, revealing through the letters and diaries of 10 people the momentous ten days that led to the Allied invasion of Europe on June 6, 1944. This excellent film also presents through the reconstruction of pivotal scenes, the stories of the three key titans of D-Day, Churchill, Eisenhower and Rommel. Woven throughout the programs are the stories of 10 ordinary people caught up in the immense drama that was D-Day. These include a Canadian Infantryman from The Regina Rifles, a German soldier, spies, double agents, French resistance fighter, and US paratrooper. All of the people portrayed are not fictional characters. Of the people portrayed, those alive at the time of the film's production give remarkable and often moving interviews. This excellent film is well suited for a unit on not just Remembrance Day but on such themes as War, Nationalism, Prejudice and Racism. At 100 minutes in total playing time, this program can be divided into segments by an instructor to be used at various times during a classroom presentation to allow time for discussion and reflection.
