World War II [electronic resource]: The Propaganda Battle

The outbreak of World War II saw two motion picture experts from Germany and the United States battle each other with as much ferocity as any army or navy. Their respective missions: to ignite a public desire to wage and win a global conflict. This Bill Moyers program contains an interview with Fritz Hippler, chief filmmaker for the Nazi Party. Hippler unrepentantly claims to have spoken to the "soul of the masses" through films like The Eternal Jew, which asserted a righteous justification for genocide. Moyers also discusses America's response, which put a renowned filmmaker to work for the Allied cause-director Frank Capra, noted for his gentle, humane films about ordinary folk standing up to oppression.

Confessions of a German Soldier [electronic resource]: Between the Cross and the Swastika

During World War II, a decorated German infantry officer named Dietrich Karsten was killed in action on the Eastern Front. More than six decades later, Dietrich's granddaughter Lena Karsten was handed a stack of his letters - and a mystery: how could her grandfather, who she had known of only as a soldier who died in 1942, also have been a Protestant pastor in the 1930s who had vigorously resisted Nazism at the risk of his own life? This film follows Lena and British historian Gabriel Fawcett as they travel into rural Russia in search of her grandfather's grave and an answer to that disturbing question. Readings from Dietrich's letters and period footage appear throughout. "This film should appeal to anyone who has asked themselves what it felt like to live in Nazi Germany and why ev [...]
