Veterans’ hearts are the world’s treasure. They are a unique archive of memories keeping real feelings of the wartime and truth about it. This truth is a direct message to next generations. Ignoring it is not to appreciate the Great lessons of the Great War.

In this film, World War II is seen through the eyes of those who fought in it – veterans from the United Kingdom, the USA, France, Germany and Russia. Unique documentaries, personal stories of veterans and their perception of the war events compose a true image of the Second World War, which has been gradually fading over the time of turbulent events. Those events are to be remembered forever.
