In Crete, meet veterans of the German invasion of 1941, and in Africa visit formerly Nazi occupied Mareth in Tunisia. In Germany's capital Berlin, learn about the final stages of the war as the Soviet and Allied troops closed in, and visit Auschwitz in Poland, the most infamous of Nazi concentration camps.
