WW2 at the movies update!

So, I started the movies on WW2 thing today. We looked at life under Nazi rule through the epic that is The Sound of Music! So, we took a look at the clip from just after the wedding to the end of the concert. In amongst the singing is a glimpse at Austrian nationalism, at how the Nazi's gained control- and at the impact of Edelweiss on occupied Austria..

Next lesson is who was with the Nazi's and who was against: plus the all important how reliable is this film as evidence!

Then its onto Goodnight Mister Tom (or Hope and Glory!).

Happy days!!!
