1941 Documentaries

For Russia and the US, the year 1941 will always be associated with the beginning of a conflagration that shook the planet – the Second World War. RTD’s 1941 documentaries, let you relive the horrific first year of that bloody conflict in the USSR through first-hand accounts in the letters and stories of survivors. In RTD’s 1941 documentaries, you can hear victims of the Siege of Leningrad describe how they were trapped and what they had to resort to just to survive amid death and starvation. Or, visit the city of Sevastopol on the Crimean peninsula and find out how the Red Army mounted a 280-day defence before succumbing to the Nazi onslaught.
