Sunken Roads – Three Generations After D-Day (an Interview with a filmmaker)

Don McCarthy was 20 years old on D-Day, when the 29th Infantry Division landed on Omaha Beach. Don and the other veterans who survived D-Day will someday soon have passed into memory and legend. That realization inspired a 20-year-old filmmaker Charlotte Juergens to join Don and seven other D-Day vets on a journey to France – a commemorative pilgrimage to Omaha Beach for the 70th anniversary of the invasion.

The vets came to see Charlotte as a granddaughter, trusting her with their stories as they confront the trauma that still haunted them 70 years after the war. Charlotte’s film Sunken Roads offers a new, intergenerational perspective on D-Day, presenting the memories of 90-year-old combat veterans through the eyes of a 20-year-old woman.

Charlotte joins us live on WW2TV to talk about the film which is now available on DVD and for streaming
