"Recommend to watch this alone. I know I needed to pause it frequently, it brought up SO many emotions. Give yourself time, ( might need a whole day)."

Title: 12 Years a Slave (2013)

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2024544/?ref_=nv_sr_3

Contributed By: Pierre Joseph

"A true story of a free man who has been kidnapped to be turned into a slave. It is really powerful to feel violent abusive treatments of a man towards his fellow men/women as well as themes like standing up for truth, ethics and morality."

Title: The Man in the High Castle (2015)

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1740299/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Contributed By: Courtney Pool

"It is an Amazon original series so only available online through that website. It's a dystopia wherein the axis powers won World War II and now govern the USA and continue the same acts and practices the nazis did in the war, only in a much bigger way, and the series follows people who live in this society.

It's great for triggering emotions about violent, murderous and oppressive governments, fear of government, anger towards government, emotions about torture, murder of adults and children, eye-for-an-eye feelings, racial genocide, and more."

"This film focuses on the friendship of 2 young dutch boys & the new arrival of a young girl whom they befriend during WWII.

Saving Private Ryan

Title: Saving Private Ryan (1998)

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120815/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Contributed By: Maureen

"It is so much more obvious and confronting to watch this movie knowing now that God believes that all violence and any unloving action is not ever justified. Especially so watching the young soldier who reluctantly joins the group but is very gentle and peaceful and the "conscience" of the group....until, of course, the "justifiable" conditions come about."
