Episode Info

Final: 1x26 -- Remember (May/08/1974)

For millions, the Second World War remained the significant experience of their lives. For millions more, it meant the end of all memories. Twenty million Russians dead. Five million Germans. Six million Jews. Over three million Japanese, American, British and Commonwealth dead. The bereaved will never forget the moment they heard the news. Many still remember, each year, at reunions, at the Cenotaph, at gravesides. Yet many also remember less sombre things - moments of joy, laughter and comradeship. But the important thing is to remember.
