We need your help to reach an international audience.

Thank you very much for visiting this page. For the documentary to reach audiences beyond North America, your 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. Your donation will be put toward licensing the usage of these archival images in international territories, marketing and distribution costs, and foreign language versions.


The DVD of the film, a digital version of Peter's self-published memoir, My Story, upon which much of the documentary is based, and 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, are among the great rewards we have in exchange for your contribution.
