The Gathering of Men, 1889 to 1924

After WWI Adolf Hitler attends the meetings of the German Workers Party, a far right political party centred around racism and anti-Semitism; the natural home for Adolf Hitler's political beliefs.

The infamous Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 was superficially a failure which saw Hitler arrested, imprisoned and silenced from speaking. But this was only the beginning of a reign of terror.

Implementation of Terror, 1925 to 1939

Two key events of the late 1920's see the foundations of the National Socialist Party firmly cemented in nations psyche: the ban on Hitler's public speaking was lifted and Wall Street crashed. The devastating mix of propaganda and unbridled terror caused the German nation to fall under his spell, seemingly oblivious to the racial hatred being doled. WWII loomed, the manufacture of weapons meant unemployment was a thing of the past and the economy bloomed and so Nazi popularity would soar.

A Film Unfinished

This potent documentary uses a long-lost film reel to illustrate how the Nazis controlled and manipulated images of Jewish life during World War II. Though the Nazis made a propaganda movie of contented Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, the missing spool exposes the truth. Director Yael Hersonski shows how the imagery was staged to distort historical knowledge and, with the aid of Jewish survivors' testimony, chronicles the horrifying reality of ghetto life.

Germany's first female Chancellor Angela Merkel rose from humble roots to become the most powerful woman in the world.

Firestorm: Inside the Third Reich

After suffering heavy losses of aircraft during attacks on German factories, Winston Churchill orders cities to be targeted in order to smash German morale and reduce the number of workers available for the Nazi war machine. Hundreds of thousands of German civilians are killed as incendiary bombs turn Hamburg, Dresden and other cities into tornadoes of fire. Now, a new debate is underway over this lethal bombing campaign.

Using rare film footage (much of it in color) and stirring interviews with historians, former bomber pilots and survivors of the destruction, this extraordinary film brings to ligh [...]

Television Under the Swastika: Inside the Third Reich

Legend has it that television began in the United States in the 1950s - but in reality its origins hark back much further. Nazi leaders, determined to beat Great Britain and the U.S. to be the world's first television broadcaster, began Greater German Television in 1935. Making use of film footage discovered in the catacombs of the Berlin Federal Film Archive, Television Under the Swastika is a fascinating look at the world's first television broadcast network. It explores both the technology behind this new medium and the programming the Nazis put on it. Interviews with high-ranking Nazis as well as "ordinary" people on the street, cooking shows, sporting events, cabaret acts and teleplays are some of the stunning finds seen here - propaganda yes, but quite entertaining, and require [...]

The Goebbels Experiment: Inside the Third Reich

From The New York Times: "Arguably the most gifted of Hitler's henchmen, Joseph Goebbels was an enigmatic genius whose successful manipulation of mass political opinion was unprecedented. His rise to power will forever stand as one of history's most terrifying examples of the reach of propaganda. Filmmakers provide a rare and chilling glimpse into a brilliant but toxic mind. Rejecting commentary, they allow Goebbels to speak for himself (in the voice of Kenneth Branagh), via the extensive diaries that he kept from 1924 to 1945. Rare clips from German film and television archives illustrate the readings. The Goebbels Experiment is a cautionary reminder that equal access to the machinery of ideas may be society's most critical goal".
