(Video) Documentary Reveals the Brutality of World War 2

World War 2 truly was a world-changing event. It is hard to comprehend what the war was actually like. Fortunately, those who are dedicated to preserving history, have collected and freely share information that helps us to understand that unique time.

In the video below, information from a lost German diary is the source of a documentary that gives rare insight into the realities of the fighting on the Eastern front. Be advised, the video contains disturbing material. However, these realities are an important part of human history and should not be ignored.

While this documentary shows the brutality of World War 2 and the enemy we faced, it only scratches the surface. The sacrifices made by the Allied forces were immense and should not be forgotten. This is why we are so strongly dedicated to giving back to those who gave the most.

Help us give back by telling Congress to pass The Greatest Generation Benefits Act. Take a moment to sign our petition, and please share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
