To remember that those films are based on a true story is just overwhelming. However, it is a powerful way to sensibilize people...

"The European Union explained". I found this video very interesting ! It explains in a funny way what the European Union is and also mentions the most important aspects about it !

I really loved this topic. The EU is such a blessing for everyone. Better quality of life, better job oportunities, a better environment, ... Yes, belonging to the EU has some downsides, but I think that everyone can reduce them if we work together like one sigle force.

Charlie Chaplin's speech is so deep and emotional, because, as he said, "in this world, there's a room for everyone" and our mission is to live in this global room.

I really loved Charlie Chaplin`s speech especially the phrase that says: "we want to live by each other`s happiness not by each other`s misery"

It's funny how EU was created on the basis of democracy and yet here it is a democratic region laden with decadence and bureaucracy, in which people indulge in monotonous lifes without trying to achieve their full potential, while big corporations work insidiously behind documentacion.

The Schindler's List definitely captures the atrocities performed to innocent people during World War Two. One of my favourites :)

Uau I really liked "The Last Flower" video,but "the message to humanity" gave me goose bumps, what a beautiful speech!

The video about the last flower made me think a lot about our behaviours as humans. It really shows the essence of our race, sadly...

I feel that WWII is a very interesting and important topic to focus on. I've seen "The Pianist" and must say it's an amazing film that truthfully portrays the war and all it's atrocities. Not recommended for the easily disturbed.

I really enjoyed the video of Charlin Chaplin´s speech, and fully agree with what he says about Human Beings. "Greed has poison men´s souls" and ,due to that, Humans need to fight against it in order to create a fair and free World.

I loved "the last flower"! The end of that short story was amazing. It looked like the world was destroyed and hopeless, however there was and (should ever be) hope.

I really enjoyed Charlie Chaplin's speech, especially when he says "We think too much, and feel too little". I believe that sumps up all the global issues faced nowadays.

After watching the brief history of the EU I found myself contemplating the interesting succession of events that led to its foundation, despite never regarding this topic as one of the most interesting in my opinion.

I had never heard before that speech of Charlie Chaplin from the "Great dictator". It was absolutely splendid, he's definitely a star and those words are wise! Hope that one day everybody thinks that way...

Charlie Chaplin's speech was magnificent. All the words were chosen carefully and all together they formed this exquisite and inspirational speech. No more words about it, we all should think like he does.
