    All the above moving stories show what we all owe to generations past, but also the futility of war.

    The magnificent TV series “A World At War” should be taught in schools as a subject in its own right. It may educate youngsters of the dangers of putting people and races into different “boxes”.

    The opening scene of the series sets the tone of the entire 26 episodes, where the Germans killed virtually the entire population of the French village of Oradour-Sur-Glane and then razed it to the ground. Why ? No one knows.

    If anyone has not seen this series, I urge you to seek it out. A magnificent piece of work.
    Yes great series RR. Remember watching it in the 70s with my Dad. Loved the haunting music and great narration. Bought the boxed set and you are right a great way to teach the history of WW2.

    Whilst not being a officienado of WW2, I thought I knew the basics.

    However, near to the Reichstag is an understated memorial to all the poor, poor souls who lost their lives in concentration camps.

    In a plain, unspectacular circular, ground level memorial, EVERY concentration camp is recognised by a simple brass plaque. As I walked around this, I lost count at 50 on how many there actually was.

    Every one knows of Auschwitz. Treblinka, Belsen etc, but the sheer scale of numbers really took me by surprise.

    Berlin may not be everyone’s choice of a holiday destination. But if you are interested in recent history, it is a MUST see city.
