After Hitler

There are many documentary films which cover the ins and the outs of the Second World War conflict years i.e. between 1939 and 1945, quite a few of these even go as far as detailing the lead up to the war but there isn’t much on what happened directly after the war, until now that is.

After Hitler reveals how Europe was in ruins after the war, people had hoped for lasting peace but instead found themselves on the brink of apocalypse, five years later and the Cold War had begun. The fall of Nazi Germany did not simply mean a rosy future was waiting around the corner but rather the people of Europe had to rebuild, heal its wounds and deal with the fall-out from an extreme conflict whilst deciding how to move forward. For many civilians, the aftermath of the war was even more brutal than the conflict itself.
