Seeing history in black & white makes it seem kinda foggy and hard to imagine. It really changes how real it seems when you see the history in color.

I'm pretty amazed that we're able to see these films in color:

Japan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EsW_uvnSao
Germany: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEerqYY8N4U
Allies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aj1kkK_1JPo

Thought you might appreciate em too.

Youtube  The third link is telling me it's unavailable. I'm watching through the Germany one now, good stuff.

I think that colored junk is heresy, I'd rather perceive the material as the people of the times did, or as closely as possible... except blu-rays of old movies, that shit is awesome

People at the time didn't perceive what was happening to them in black and white.

I'd rather perceive the scene as the person who saw the scene and captured it did. ...not someone who saw a crappy b&w photo of it reprinted in newspaper three days later, wtf.
