The Christmas Truce

December 19th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

There’s a vid going around of a commercial that uses the Christmas Truce of 1914 as its backdrop. The History Channel did a documentary about this several years ago. History Channel documentaries to me are notoriously cheesy and often not very accurate. But the topic of this one is so compelling that this particular video is very powerful. I show this video to my World History Classes as part of the World War I segment and it’s not unusual to see emotional response from the students (which is what I am hoping for). It’s about 45 minutes long and well worth a watch IM(not so)HO. I find the question of the Belgian tour guide haunting, “Why could they not keep that truce after Christmas?”
