How could Nazi killers shoot Jewish women and children at close range? Why did Japanese soldiers rape and murder on such a horrendous scale? How was it possible to endure the torment of a Nazi concentration camp? Award-winning documentary maker and historian Laurence Rees has spent nearly 20 years wrestling with these questions in the course of filming hundreds of interviews with people tested to the extreme during World War II. He has come face-to-face with rapists, mass murderers, even cannibals, but he has also met courageous individuals who are an inspiration to us all. In Their Darkest Hour he presents 35 of his most electrifying encounters.

"For the last 20 years, award-winning director and bestselling author Laurence Rees has worked on projects based on the Second World War. His documentaries such as Auschwitz and The Nazis: A Warning From History have been celebrated across the board and have broken new boundaries. In the course of his work he has encountered a spectacularly wide range of people who lived through the war. Some of these people he found inspirational in their seemingly limitless ability to deal with impossible situations, to cope with no end of despair and still come out the other side. Viewers of his programmes will know that he has also achieved the impossible - in persuading those who carried out what can only be described as crimes against humanity, to talk about how they came to act the way they did; to bring us all closer to an understanding of what human beings are capable of doing when pushed to extremes. resented as a beautifully packaged small hardback, this is a unique and special book. On one hand it represents fascinating encounters with a collection of individuals. And on the other hand, it is an inspiration, a book that encourages you to dwell on the big questions, that challenges you

‘You and me – we’re sisters, not enemies. We’ve got a real enemy at our door and we need to focus on that – together, united. I don’t want to be fighting you as well.’ In the small French town of Colmar, swastikas hang from lampposts, tanks are lined up outside the town hall, and twenty-one-year-old Marie-Claire is in love. She will do anything for her childhood friend Jacques, including spying on her German boss, Dietrich Kurtz. Anything to make Jacques see her in a new light, as something more than just a silly little girl. But when Jacques rejects her, everything changes. Mortified and stung, Marie-Claire feels the need for revenge. She turns her back on those she loves and is catapulted into a new life. Her little sister Victoire is aghast at her sister’s traitorous behaviour, not least because Marie-Claire is endangering Victoire’s own life-threatening mission, hiding Jewish refugees in their mother’s wine cellar. And when Marie-Claire marries Kurtz, Victoire knows her relationship with her sister has been poisoned for ever. But when Victoire learns someone she loves is in terrible danger, her only choice is to trust the sister who betrayed her. Kurtz, Marie-Claire’s cruel and heartless husband, has key information and Victoire must persuade Marie-Claire to obtain it, even if it means risking Marie-Claire’s life. As secrets come to light and close bonds are broken, will the sisters be able to heal old wounds? An unforgettable and unputdownable story of two sisters ripped apart by World War 2.
