In this video Corporal Roger Peters learns the meaning of freedom after meeting a group of freed concentration camp survivors on the road outside of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. An estimated 50,000 prisoners died there, with 35,000 of them dying in the three months before the camp was liberated.
War affects governments and groups of people on such a large scale that it can be overwhelming.

This series of videos, 'The War: Nebraska Stories,' continues the saga of World War II through very personal interviews with Nebraskans who lived through that war.
