After Hitler

Episode 1  |  SBS  |  December 4, 2016

In the five years that separated the end of WWII from the start of the Cold War, the world hoped for lasting peace, but instead found itself on the brink of apocalypse. In May, 1945, a terrible war finally ended in the smoking ruins of the Reich. But for many civilians, the aftermath of the war was even more brutal than the conflict itself. Based entirely on remastered and re-coloured archives, this film details the searing reality of those post war years by compiling unseen Russian, British, German, French, Canadian and American archives, and unique images of daily life.
