Support the Film

Thank you very much for visiting this page.  For the documentary to be completed so it can reach audiences, your generous support is needed and greatly appreciated.  The film contains a very large volume of archival footage and photographs sourced from German, Russian, British and American archives. Some of it is very rare and has not been seen by contemporary audiences.  A portion of your contribution will be put toward licensing the usage of these archival assets.  Funds acquired through donations will also be put toward marketing and distribution costs, foreign language versions, E&O insurance and DVD authoring.



A DVD of the film (when completed), a digital version of Peter's self-published memoir,"My Story" upon which much of the documentary is based, a digital version of Peter's 1950 book, "From Military Government To State Department", which was mass printed for U.S. Military personnel in Germany, and a 'Thank You' mention in the film's end credits are among the great rewards we have in exchange for your contribution.
