Episode 2 of 2

Edward Stourton walks the most dangerous WWII escape route over the Pyrenees to tell the remarkable stories of those who escaped to freedom and the bravery of those who helped them.

During World War II tens of thousands of people escaped Nazi occupied Europe by taking a hazardous and often gruelling trek over the Pyrenees Mountains from France to Spain. Edward Stourton is following in their footsteps along the Freedom Trail. It's day three, the halfway point of his walk, but the worst is yet to come.
