5,403 Views 0 Comments 34:06

The slaughter of Nanking, commonly known as the Rape of Nanking, was an infamous genocidal war crime committed by the Japanese army in Nanjing, then capital of the Republic of China, after it fell to Imperial Japanese Army on December 13, 1937.The duration of the slaughter is not clearly defined, although the violence lasted well into the next six weeks, until early February 1938.During the occupation of Nanjing, the Japanese army committed numerous atrocities, including rape, looting, arson and the execution of prisoners of war and civilians.Although the executions began under the pretext of eliminating Chinese soldiers disguised as civilians, it is stated that a large number of innocent men were intentionally identified as enemy combatants and executed-or simply killed outright-as the slaughter gathered momentum.A large number of women and children were also killed, as rape and murder became more widespread.Watch the second part of this documentary here.

Adolf Hitler – The Greatest Story Never Told
Adolf Hitler – The Greatest Story Never Told

4,727 Views 0 Comments 05:50:47

This is a potentially controversial docu-drama about Adolf Hitler, showing his life growing up, and his reign of Germany through WW2.Most historical documentaries show Hitler as the mad leader behind the slaughter of countless people, and while that part is true, the story behind his life, through defeat in the trenches WW1, his desire to be an artist, and his upbringing is rarely told.During World War 1, which is a turning point in the life of Adolf Hitler, he reportedly loved the trench warfare, even volunteering for hazardous duty, and was actually awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class for Bravery.The film also goes into Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, one of the worlds best selling books, which gives not only his political and social views, but also talks about boxing, Syphilis and other seemingly random topics.Using historical footage and re-created scenes, this documentary may not change your opinions of the most talked about German Leaders in history, but should at least give you more insight into his life and why he did what he did.This film is broken into parts, starting with the trailer.Be sure to see the filmmaker’s website at: http://thegreateststorynevertold.tv/

Both the United States and the Soviet Union drifted apart after the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Russian Civil War and the Paris Peace Conference. Diplomatic and extensive trading relationships were established under Roosevelt, but relations soured following the Soviet occupation of the Baltic States and eastern Poland. After Hitler broke the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact the Western powers worked closely with the Soviet Union during the Second World War. Distrust reemerged as Stalin's plans for placing Eastern Europe in the Soviet Union's sphere of influence became apparent towards the war's end, and came to the fore at the Potsdam Conference, just before the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Interviewees include George F. Kennan, Zoya Zarubina, Hugh Lunghi and George Elsey.

The Vietnam Veterans Against the War, or VVAW, launched a media campaign from January 31st, 1971 to February 2nd, 1971 in order to inform the public and raise awareness of the atrocities and war crimes committed by the US Army in the Vietnam War. The VVAW presented evidence of these crimes and directly linked the military policy and the crimes committed in Vietnam.The gathering was organized in Detroit, Michigan and it lasted for three days. Among the participants were 109 Vietnam veterans, around 20 civilians, academics and medical personnel. They openly spoke about the war crimes that they either committed or witnessed between 1963 and 1970.The event did not get the expected media coverage, but a number of journalists from Detroit recorded the gathering and the testimonials which were later used in the making of this documentary in 1972. The transcript of this documentary was entered by Senator Mark Hatfield into the Congressional Record. The content of records was discussed at the Fulbright Hearings in April and May 1971, with Senator J.

It cites a badly-edited videotape that surfaced in December, 2001. The tape shows a fat guy who vaguely resembles Bin Laden chortles about the success of the 9/11 attacks.It is also known that in earlier interviews, Bin Laden had denied responsibility for 9/11. He had once even deplored the loss of civilian life in the attacks and saw the attacks as un-Islamic.

The Legend Of The Ninja

698 Views 0 Comments 44:09

A ninja or shinobi was a mercenary warrior class that originates from 15th century Japan. Some of the basic operations of the ninja included infiltration, espionage, sabotage, assassination and also open combat if needed. In the troubled times of the Sengoku period, between 15th and 17th century, a class of mercenaries and spies for hire emerged in the Province of Iga and the surrounding area of the village of Kōga. The contemporary knowledge that we have on ninjas is provided from the clan records of these two areas. The figure of the ninja poses a central character in a number of folklore tales and legends, and as a consequence it is often difficult to tell the difference between historical fact and myth. Among the extraordinary abilities attributed to the ninja were the control over the elements in nature, invisibility and the ability to walk on water. That, in turn, twisted the perception of the ninja in western popular culture in the 20th century. The view on these warriors of the night is ever so often based on various legends and folklore rather than on the historical facts about them.Watch this documentary and see the truth behind the legends of the ninja warriors. Discover the mindset of people that devoted themselves to such a lifestyle of danger and discipline.

This is a 2008 documentary which investigates the significance of the photos taken by the military police of the U.S. at the prison in Abu Ghraib at the end of 2003. These photographs uncovered the torment and misuse of its detainees by U.S. troopers and therefore brought about an open embarrassment. The director of this documentary is Errol Morris. Remarking on the relationship of his film to the infamous photos, Morris has said his plan was to reveal these perpetrators as the ones who were supposed to serve as scapegoats. It was awfully convenient to proclaim them as the only responsible ones due to the fact that they were in the photos. Photographs don't let us know who the genuine guilty parties may be. They can likewise serve as a cover-up and be highly misleading. Photographs uncover and hide, serve both as confession and concealment. This is an examination of the expected outcomes of the Iraqi war with an attention on occasions at Abu Ghraib jail which started to show up in worldwide media in 2004. The jail rapidly got to be famous for the photographs of the misuse of dread suspects, their youngsters, and the innocent citizens by military personnel.

This is no ordinary travel documentary; this is total “Hell on Earth”. Warlords, cannibalism, child soldiers on heroin, squalor and total madness. General Bin Laden, General Butnaked, General Mosquito…just imagine the scene in Baboon town. This is a black humorous look at what is a comical yet deadly situation…amazing!What Andy Capper, Editor Vice UK, is said about the film: We came to Liberia with a small team of three and quickly found a local journalist who would be our guide and fixer. Our first shoot location was the prestigious West Point, home to 80,000 people living in that redefine squalor. Thousands of rotting garbage around the neighborhood, which has no sewage system.Almost everyone – including local government officials – defecate and urinate in the open. Drugs, prostitution and armed robbery are the main industries. We got to know some of the residents of West Point, they told us their stories as he smoked heroin and cocaine and we asked for money.Then we visited a local brothel. Women who lived there spoke to us about the UN peacekeepers who have sex with child prostitutes and beat older women, and then not pay.But perhaps the most revealing parts of our trip to Liberia came to the meeting of the main leaders of the nation’s civil wars. There is a tradition in the Liberian militias outrageous noms de guerre assumed. Therefore, our subjects Bin Laden named General, General Rambo and General Butt Naked. The latter, in particular, was one of the Liberian warlords, most famous. He claims to have personally killed 20,000 people, including babies, and sometimes have cannibalized his victims.Today, General Butt Naked is on his birth name, which is Joshua. During our time together, we said that Liberia will surely implode into civil war when the UN leaves again next year. But in the meantime, Joshua wants to redeem himself. He offered us a vision of Liberia that wants to establish, and we are growing for him. He took us to his church, which rehabilitates child soldiers. We watched as he preached his way through Monrovia on a Sunday.Is there a possibility that successful mission, and the civil war still can be avoided in this country so desperately? That’s one of the many questions that arose with our safe return of Liberia. View our documentary about our stay there and see what you think.
