World War II movies I'm trying to identify

Please help me identify these two movies:

1.
There was a house in the woods where a woman lives with her son.
And to this house a few soldiers arrive one by one looking for shelter.
An American, a German, a British, an Italian, I don't remember exactly, but a few soldiers from different armies, looking for shelter. Some of them were wounded.
The woman offered them shelter, food and care, but on condition that they put down their weapons and not kill each other.
2.
There was a German officer and his pregnant wife (or girlfriend).
And he has just learned some secret about her (she was Jewish or a spy or something) and starts beating her up. He punches and kicks her in the stomach to kill the fetus.
The woman survives, loses the pregnancy, and is sent to a concentration camp.
She somehow manages to escape and then gets revenge.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Greetings - can you share some details? TV movie or something that may have been theatrical? Made recently or older. Assume both color? Main language - English, German, Russian, Polish, was it subtitled when characters spoke in native language?

Hi, I found out the title of the first movie, someone answered me on another forum.

It's Silent Night (TV Movie 2002)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338434/

The second movie I saw about 20 years ago.
I think it was made in the 80's and 90's and is English speaking.

I remember the scene where a German Nazi officer violently beats his pregnant wife (or fiancée). I think he found out she was of Jewish descent and couldn't accept that she was having his baby.
Then I remember a train station, a train and how she is sent to a concentration camp.
And then follows a kind of revenge. I think some intelligence agencies are involved, british or american.

And did you like It's Silent Night?

I'm choosing which film to watch, but would like to ask someone for recommendation first

Adding @redblu who solved it as I have not seen Silent Night...but it sounds interesting since Linda Hamilton is in it

Hey @ThomasHeath !I saw that film, and I actually liked it. So if you have doubts about watching it or not, I'd give it a try. Also, Defiance is a pretty interesting film, and I watched it recently. I can't say that I like such a film genre, but I needed to watch a few films for my university task. I had to write about World War 2, and I wanted to make the paper more interesting and describe how that period is represented in films. Actually, I found one site where I read more info about it and found World War 2 essay examples, which helped me a lot, and there I found the idea to write also a film analysis, and I think it was a great decision. I was also looking for some books, but it would have taken me too much time, so I decided to stop at films.

Definitely worth watching Silent Night, it's one of those good movies that went under the radar and no one knows about it. It's based on a true story.

P.S. I'm still looking to identify the second movie.
