Summary
"Strange victory showed that US servicemen returning home from defeating a racist and genocidal regime found their own country plagued by Jim Crow, anti-Semitism, anti-Catholicism and xenophobia. One of the great artists of the cinema, Hurwitz combined documentary footage of World War II battles, refugees, and the Nuremberg trials with powerful portrayals of a divided postwar America"--Container
