Breath of Freedom

During World War 2, over a million Black soldiers fought for freedom in a segregated army.

In World War II over a million African Americans fought for freedom and democracy - in an army, that was strictly segregated by race. These Black GIs fought to liberate Germany from Nazi rule, as racism reached unfathomable levels at home and their unit. Finding a "breath of freedom" in post-war Germany, Black soldiers experienced for the first time what it felt like to be treated as equals.
