After Frank Capra and his crew helped win World War II with the “Why We Fight” series of propaganda films, they undertook to tell the occupying troops how to behave. Perhaps the most striking thing about Your Job in Germany and its sequel, Our Job in Japan, is the dramatically different attitudes they reveal toward the two vanquished enemies. These two short films will be shown with another one, Surrender in the Pacific, at noon at the National Archives Theater, 7th & Pennsylvania Ave. NW; at noon Wednesday at the National Archives Auditorium, 8601 Adelphi Rd., College Park. FREE. (202) 501-5000. (MJ)
