The Liberation Route is a 12-part documentary about the international commemoration route, set up by the foundation Liberation Route Europe, which joins together those important milestones of the Second World War. The route forms a chain between the most important regions during the advance of the western allies: from the south of England to the beaches of Normandy, the Belgian Ardennes, south-eastern provinces of the Netherlands, the Hürtgenwald and Berlin.
The series guides us along this route, accompanied by local hosts who each have a link with the Second World War. Along the actual facts they also tell us their personal stories, which offers the public an alternative view of the events.
The documentary series is made at the request of, and in cooperation with the Liberation Route Europe foundation. It enjoys a wide network of historians, government organizations, universities, museums, veteran groups and organizers of commemoration events.
