Extra History - The Christmas Truce: Silent Night


Extra Credits teamed up with us once again, and today we present you with a new two-part video story – this time about the Christmas Armistice in 1914, one of the most heartwarming events of World War I. In the first part, we'll be talking about the historical event, in which the soldiers of the opposing nations laid down their weapons to celebrate Christmas together; proof that humanity exists even in the darkest conflicts. 

But for now, sit back and enjoy!

Subtitles in our supported languages are also available by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right corner.
