Vertreibung/Odsun - Das Sudetenland - Part 1 and 2

Post by Hans1906 » 18 Nov 2020 19:19

Good evening,

Excellent new two part documentary about the "Expulsion" (G:"Vertreibung") of the Sudeten Germans from the Sudetenland.
Docu from the year 2020, a production of the german TV channel MDR, Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk.

Translation from the Arte website:
"Czechs and Sudeten Germans lived together peacefully as neighbors for centuries. But German tyranny, the Second World War and expulsion - in Czech Odsun - destroyed the world as they knew it forever. Czechs and Germans now look back together for the first time: What is the state of reconciliation?"

Part 1 https://www.arte.tv/de/videos/097503-00 ... nland-1-2/
Part 2 https://www.arte.tv/de/videos/097503-00 ... nland-2-2/

Very worth seeing, a difficult and very complex topic, to me personally the best film documentation on this topic so far.
Running time for both parts 90 minutes.
Online in the Arte Mediathek until december 16th, 2020.

Danke sehr, Hans1906

I've been trying to find live-streaming, videos, etc. from the MDR site previously, but to no avail. Maybe I'm too used to the NDR set-up.

You are welcome, Gorque

I am not sure in which countries the Arte channel's documentaries are available.

Unfortunately "Clocktown" doesn't tell me anything, but I'm pretty sure that both parts of the documentation will be shown on YouTube or elsewhere at a later date. At least for a limited time?

Gorque,

the earlier "Riefenstahl" topic may be interesting for you, to be able to watch "Arte" documentaries for forum members from countries
outside of the EU:
