FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines first-hand the health-care systems of other advanced capitalist democracies -- UK, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan -- to see what tried and tested ideas might help us reform our broken health-care system."--Frontline web site.

Hitler's Search for the Holy Grail

Loading...
"Explores how history was used as a political tool and how the theories of the Nazi historical department provided the ideology used by the SS (Schutzstaffel-- "protection squadron") to justify genocide.

Nazi ideas about "Aryans" and the "master race" came out of historical and ethnic fantasies in which legends such as the Holy Grail and the lost city of Atlantis-- supposed to be a home of the Aryan race-- played their part.."--Www. pbs. org.

Germany Today

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "This is the story of a people desolate in defeat, who found the way back with the help of the military force that defeated them.
