August 1945 - 1946. Japan surrenders. World War II is over, but the scars are deep. Canadian prisoners are released from Japanese war camps. In Canada, as elsewhere, the monumental task of rehabilitation begins. In Ottawa the Gouzenko case shocks the nation. The trials at Nürenberg begin. The United Nations is formed. Canada, now a much stronger, independent nation, enters the Cold War.

    “@doninvictoria - We have a vast collection of films available on this site for free streaming - many of them in the history/war category. However, we don't have the rights to stream all our films online for free. Some of these films can be seen by those subscribed to our educational offer, and this is one of those titles. The subscription fee to our educational offer covers the rights required to stream the films in the classroom.” — jmatlin, 11 Jan 2012

    “It is a disgrace that you want me to pay $25 to see a film that I was shown in elementary school and that has been paid for many times over by Canadians in the last 50 years. Have you no shame?” — doninvictoria, 11 Jan 2012
