2.De Franse Slag in Zeeland

Rating:
★★★★★

This documentary is about the start of the second World War. The film starts in 1939 with the policital jibbering between the Dutch and the French governments about the defense against a possible German attack. The French plan on forming a line against the Germans with Belgium and the Netherlands, but the Dutch government wants to remain neutral like in the first World War. When the German attack the Netherlands after all, the French immediately take action and take position. They do this in Zeeland and Brabant in order to defent the entrance to "The Schelde". The story then zoomes in on the battle for Zuid-Beveland and Walcheren, with emphasis on the French troops. The film also shines light on the civilian side of the French battle. We hear from Tobias van Gent about the history and military strategy, eyewitnesses of the German attack in Zeeland, the French soldier about the goal of the French and about General Deslourens as well as some experts in the field.

3.De Tien van Renesse

Rating:
★★★★★

The "Tien van Renesse" is a documentary telling the story about ten men, hung by the Germans in December of 1944, after they deliberately make registers disappear and conspire with the enemy. Together with surviving relatives, this documentary takes a look on these atrocities and how it changed their lives forever. It shows how an escape attempt of 17 men from the resistance completely fails, of which only seven get away and the other ten get caught. Town Clerk C. Lazonder has to watch hopelessly as his ten friends are hanged, after which the same faith awaits himself. The Germans leave the bodies hanging for 24 hours in order to scare the people, relatives don't get the chance to say goodbye or even bury the bodies as they're being thrown into mass graves, and their homes are cleared or burned to the ground.
