World War II: Behind Closed Doors

This a documentary film on the role of Joseph Stalin during World War II. The film combines narrative-led documentary segments, interwoven by dramatic re-enactments, with actors representing main political figures of the period.

The documentary carries information newly available to the public, from the Soviet archives, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

British historian Laurence Rees did the research compilation and lead writing for the series.

Joseph Stalin – the supreme leader of the Soviet Union – was a tyrant responsible for the death of millions. Yet he also had some unlikely relationships during the Second World War.

Not just with leaders of the great democracies like Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt, but also with Hitler and the Nazis.

For the first time, this ambitious series from award-winning filmmaker Laurence Rees uses exclusive evidence gained from the actual conversations and secret meetings Stalin conducted with Roosevelt, Churchill and Hitler, to dramatically reveal the true natures of the three leaders and how the meetings they had – and the decisions they made – shaped the world today.

            They not only referred to specific documents but also stated when and how those documents were uncovered. You should re-watch…the propaganda is in your head, not this documentary.

     things is , your assuming Soviets were communist and well they weren’t , just as the nazis were not socialist they were all fascist. I dont find this documentary to be against communism just the totalitarian government of the soviets and Nazis..

  • gogreece

    Ok fuckgreece you clearly have no idea what your talking about, even you numbers concerning Russian losses are wrong haha. FYI more then 10 million Russian soldiers and 16 million civilians dyed in the war. A total of 26 to 27 million, a tragedy on a unimaginable scale. But the Molotov Ribbentrop pact definitely did happen…..( The nazis made the agreements and then broke them) you can read about it in pretymuch every single ww2 history book in the world.   It is also referenced in many movies and TV shows, probably better for you because clearly you do not read alot.

      My History Books when I learned it said 3 million soldiers! Two things. The Nazis couldnt stand the communists and the communists couldnt stand the Nazis. I suppose you are going to tell me Communism and Nazism are the same thing right?

    • fuckgreece

      Also forgot to ask you. So How many people were killed in WWII. I learned it was close to 60 million and so according to you half of them were Russians! LOL

    I believe my favorite comment by indidviduals who have nothing more to say is. Go eat some grass sheep. Or the common use of the term Sheeple.
    Are these people receiving information that I am not aware of. They always seem to be poor spellers and facts seem to physically wound them. I guess those of us who work hard every day save our money and take care of our families, cannot possibly understand the complexities of the world like fuckgreece can. Burn your history books people. I implore you fuckgreece, save us from our cattle grazing ways. I am tired of eating healthy green grass, perhaps I will try to choke down some of you`re horseshit.

  • fuckgreece

     This documentary gives a nice a idea of who really worked with who during WWII

    How well we learned how brutally the Nazis and the Soviets became a ruthless bunch of power-tripping, murderous killing machines in the honour of war…this shows us the murderous brutality and murders that we didn’t learn about…we all learned, who not to trust…anybody!

  • saintjames

    fuckgrease, you are the only idiot in the world unaware of the non-aggression pact in ’39. get your shit straight before you throw around your gay lol’s. by the way the number of soviets who died in ww2 was between 25 and 28 million, by far the most suffered by any one nation. lol and gfy

    Don’t understand what you have against Greece but, oh well, you’re entitled to your opinions. Communism/Socialism doesn’t work because it takes incentive from the individual, it’s counter-anthropology; us! Chimps don’t go foraging to bring food to another troop, au contraire, they defend their food source (Jane Goodall). On top of all that, their liquidity is resticted, it resricts creativity with those assets. I have a banna for you. Now you don’t have to go look for one. Now you don’t have to learn how to climb a tree to get one. Do as I SAY or you won’t get any more bannas.  If Bell had not been able sell stocks and gain investor money, would you have a cell phone? 

  • Dlwunz

    To fuckgreece, I can only imagine that you are against western civilizaton as a whole and hate European Civilization in particular. My mom had polio when she was a kid, still limps to this day, I was given vaccine when I was seven. I had ruebella (German Measles) when I was eight, pennecilin saved my life. I grew up and got a job, after more education than High School, and raised myself from a Hillbilly Boy (Pennsylvania Appliachia) to an educated advertising executive (speaking six languages) making tens of thousands a year. My mom sure is grateful for all this.
