Six days in June : the war that redefined the Middle East( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the fighting lasted for only six days in June of 1967, the effects of the Six Day War are still apparent today. On its 40th anniversary, the region remains trapped in conflict and is every bit as explosive as it was then. For Israel, the 1967 war was a military success. But it also redrew the map of the Middle East and mired the region in a never-ending cycle of occupation, terrorism and reprisal. The Six Day War forever changed the politics of the Middle East by helping to destroy the secular basis of Pan-Arab nationalism and transform secular Zionism. It gave rise to a Palestinian nationalist movement and helped unleash the fury of fundamentalism. Shot on location in Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Moscow and Washington, this powerful film takes us through the weeks that preceded the war, its six days of fighting and its aftermath that still lingers today

When Lenin's Bolsheviks stormed the Winter Palace in 1917, they did so in the name of a new ideology. Millions were drawn by its promise. In this film the people who were there--from members of the Red Guard to party activists to students--explain how Communism appealed to their deepest hopes and dreams. Through them, we hear how Communist leadership, under Vladimir Lenin and later, Joseph Stalin, compromised the proletarian ideal--and how hope eventually gave way to despair

Highlights people who witnessed and participated in the struggle for independence in India and the African colonies
Lost peace, 1919( Visual )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The First World War bathed the new century in blood. Nine million lost their lives in a merciless war of attrition. A whole generation was traumatized by the horror of the trenches and vowed that war would be a thing of the past. Lost Peace revisits the popular hopes and experiences in the years following World War I and a looming threat of a new nationalism. Defeated nations were left out in the cold, resentful and unreconciled. By the late 1930s, people had to choose between avoiding war at all costs, or taking up arms to resist aggression. Fifty-five million lives were about to be lost in a second world war. The people remember: armistice celebrations, Woodrow Wilson, the Treaty of Versailles, League of Nations, pacifist movements, Adolf Hitler, Austria."--container

With a unique blend of nationalism, militarism, and racial theory, Adolf Hitler taught the German people to believe that they were the "master race." Stirred by the Fuhrer's rousing rhetoric during mass rallies, millions were swept along with the promise of national socialism. In this film Germans talk candidly about the initial allure of Nazism and German Jews recall their persecution and internment in concentration camps as Hitler's master race pursued its destiny--and descended to the greatest depths of barbarism

6 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By mid-century, modern technology and Western thought had swept religion to the margins of public life. Since, millions have turned back to God -- and taken political action based on their religious beliefs.

Just over fifty years ago, Soviet and American troops met at the River Elbe and rejoiced at the defeat of Nazi Germany but their optimism was short lived. This film tracks the building tensions between these two superpowers, from the post-war world of the late 1940s through the early 1960s, as the hope for peace swiftly disintegrated into a "cold" war. Here eyewitnesses recall the meeting on the Elbe, the impact of Stalin, Churchill and Khrushchev, propaganda wars between the two nations, the Berlin blockade, the Hungarian uprising and the installation of the Berlin Wall
On the line, 1924( Visual )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Henry Ford's Model T rolls onto the scene in 1908, it is inconceivable that it will ever be anything more than a plaything for the wealthy. But mass production and later, Ford's moving assembly line, allowed manufactureres to produce goods at affordable prices that made them accessible to a new mass market. This film follows the acceleration of mass production, from the days of master craftsmen to the pressures and benefits of assembly-line work to the growing strength of "people power" as labor and management struggle to divide the fruits of increased productivity
Finest hour : the Battle of Britain( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Account of one of the most critical periods of World War II. In the spring of 1940, Holland, Belgium, and France fell to Hitler's army. The Soviet Union was Germany's ally, and the United States stood on the sidelines. At this time of peril, it was Britain alone that faced the Nazi army. Thanks to Britain's two great assets: its indomitable leader, Winston Churchill, and the courage and resilience of its people--ordinary citizens who accomplished extraordinary things, a nation's darkest hour became its finest. Through months of intense air bombardment, including the "Blitz" of London, and under permanent threat of invasion, the British people exemplified heroism under fire. The peoples of occupied Europe, and those of the United States, came to see that resistance to Hitler was indeed possible. This two-part documentary focuses on both the personal experiences of men and women who were on the front lines, and the political intrigue behind the scenes--especially Churchill's relations with U.S. President

In this film soldiers from all sides give a personal account of the trenches and the tactics--and the terrible nature and scale of the slaughter that shattered the old world order. In the end, four empires collapsed and nine million gave their lives. Some became pacificts while others sought retribution and many found themselves fighting another war only two decades later
Breadline, 1929( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
