where is the medals for this men!?
Well deserved victory for you.
I would've liked to hear a few more tales like these! Well done bringing light to another side of the story, and in such a matter-of-fact way too. Simple, uncompromising and not glorified at all, but uplifting nevertheless. The complexity of conflicts between countries, and soldiers, and people, all the most relevant within the World Wars... it doesn't get brought up enough. Movies all depict things in black and white, the armies synonymous with the ideals of their leaders, but it's little glimpses of individuality like this I'd really like to see more of! Great work with the build-up and story-telling too. Fantastic work.
And all this for the Jam, too! The basement had space for more than I expected.
Congratulations on being the most popular Basement Jam submission! I can see why. Saving people in the Holocaust is always tear jerking. It was a little predictable. It's still worth it. The music was enchanting.
It deserved Daily Feature. Of course you weren't saying good things about the Nazis! Who would think that?! It's just that some weren't willing to kill everyone. It goes with the following orders argument.
I was skeptic in making this in not only was it going to be demanding and a toll on my life, job, time and etc. But worried that social media and irl cases of people getting angry and twisting this into something that it is not. It seemed that anything that was related toward Nazi's, no matter what, if it was true or false would start shit storm online. Eventally, accusing those of supporting nazi's.
I remember seeing someone saying that people like Schindler should be forgotten, regardless that he saved thousands of jewish people lives. All because he was tied toward the nazi party. Like no matter what, they were going to kick off and start something if I dare talked about it.
Luckily, I've been to Germany. I have not only my friends in Germany having my back but also history as there have been lots of documented moments of german soliders in 1940's not committing the horrid acts. They just get ignored mostly.
