Siege Documentaries

RTD’s siege documentaries bring you first-hand accounts of starvation, death, and liberation from survivors of the 20th century’s most epic blockades. Witness the horrors of the 872-day Siege of Leningrad and find out what the victims had to resort to just to survive. You can also see how the Red Army defended the Crimean city of Sevastopol for 280 days before finally succumbing to a Nazi assault. RTD’s siege documentaries also show how Britain, France, and Turkey laid siege to the same city during the Crimean War some 100 years earlier and take you to a graveyard where 50,000 of the some 128,000 Russian victims were buried.
