Why We Fight (HBO Series, Band of Brothers, Episode 9, 55 min, USA 2001)
October 18, 2018 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location 9220 Kirby Dr., Suite 100

"Band of Brothers" is a ten-part video series dramatizing the history of one company of American paratroopers in World War II - E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne, known as "Easy Company." Band of Brothers depicts not only the heroism of their exploits but also the extraordinary bond among men formed in the crucible of war.

In the ninth episode, titled "Why We Fight," Easy Company finally enters Germany in April 1945, finding very little resistance as they proceed. There they are impressed by the industrious of the defeated locals and gain respect for their humanity. But the G.I.s are then confronted with the horror of an abandoned Nazi concentration camp in the woods, which the locals claim not to have known anything about. Here the story of Easy Company is connected with the broader narrative of the war - the ideology of the Third Reich and Hitler's plan to exterminate the Jews.

One of the Museum's educators will lead a discussion after the screening.
