Love Letters of World War II portrays an epic love story that persisted during a tumultuous time that shaped the world. From courting from afar, to arguments after growing weary of empty mailboxes, a scarf that fatefully saved a life, and fantasies of reuniting, their love endured. Woven through this romance, we highlight stories of a generation of brave men and women who stepped up in the name of human dignity and in the face of adversity, including rebellious French female resistants, the courageous nurses on the home front, a cabaret dancer who used her art to help others and escape a Nazi invasion, and a joyous liberation. We bring to life the universal love letters that kept a generation alive.
