Let Us Die Like Brothers

Commonwealth War Graves Commission / The History Channel   |   UK

There is a significant lack of information available to young people, both in the United Kingdom and South Africa, which deals with the involvement and sacrifices made by black servicemen during the two world wars. By telling the story of the sinking of the Mendi, and the tragic loss of those on board, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in collaboration with The History Channel aims to redress some of this imbalance. Reason for Submission: This educational CD-Rom tells of the hopes and dreams of black South Africans who enlisted, examines the way they were treated and the legacy of their sacrifice. CD-Rom includes detailed lesson plans cross referenced to the National Curriculum.
