World History Video - Advice?

A few years ago I watched a short video of 20th century images backed by a contemporary pop song. It was used as an introduction to a debate on the good and bad features of the 20th Century. Has anybody seen it/got a copy?

You might also use these FREE ON-LINE books:

1) "Hell on Earth: Brutality and violence under the Stalinist regime."

2) “Diary of a Former Communist: Thoughts, Feelings, Reality.”

This second book is my own autobiography, based on a diary I kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).

The first book was written with American students in mind. They know practically nothing about the Soviet History, as numerically documented in Section 4.5 .

Some say that these books are "imperialist propaganda" and "relics of cold war." This is not true; no one asked me to write them. Writing was a moral obligation to my parents, victims of Stalinism.

Please share these links with others. Perhaps someone would be interested in reviewing one of my books, and in publishig the review. I would be happy to cooperate. Let me know if you are interested. Thank you in advance.

Section 3.7 from the first book is likely to generate interesting debates about morality. Feel free to quote anything from these two books.

There's a you tube video if 'we didn't start the fire' with the images on. Search on you tube, it's still there

Not sure about the images but I think the song could be Billy Joel's 'WE didn't start the fire'
