Liberation Heroes: The Last Eyewitnessesexplores the journeys of Liberators and Liberator Witnesses drawing parallels between the past and present. These one-of-a-kind stories of World War II heroes serve as a compelling reminder of what is at stake as antisemitism and xenophobia have reached a new crisis level, and as a call to action to stand against hatred in all forms.
