My Dad was the one who sparked my interests in history. He made me realize that it is very important to have an
understanding of previous time and how it effected the lives of not only myself, but of others. The idea of doing a film was something that friends of mine approached me with. As the darkest chapter in human history ended in 1945, those who took part in it to repel tyranny and oppression are dying each day. Each day a significant part of history slips away. Hundreds of WWII veterans pass away as hours go by, so it is important to remember their sacrifices. I've always wanted to develop some sort of visual document that ultimately says thank you, and leaves people with a message that what they suffered through wasn't a pleasant experience. All gave some, some gave all. These veterans gave away their tomorrows, for our today. This film is my thank you and representation of history.
