About the Director

R.J. Adams the director discovered that filming these enormous structures known in the Third Reich as Ordensburgen was both a challenge and adventure. One of his favorite stories was in trying to locate the compound known as Falkenburg am Croisensee, a complex that the Polish government would even acknowledge existed. According to Adams, nothing had been written about Falkenburg for several decades so it's location was a true mystery. But eventually my crew and I found our way to the front gate of this massive structure with cameras in hand ready to film every nook and cranny. But entrance to the compound initially proved nearly impossible as security blocked our every move beyond the exterior parking area. In addition they were completely unwilling to provide any information regarding the former Order Castles let alone allow access to the sprawling fortress. But with a little help from the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, the Poles relented and a few days later we were granted complete access of which we took full advantage. Order Castles of the Third Reich marks the first time that all three former Nazi Order Castles have been captured on film.

Finally!!A video about Hitler and the Third Reich that isn't a re-hash of the same old thing you see on the history channel and elsewhere. I was completely unaware that these enormous castle like structures even exsisted, yet providing the training for Hitler's elite political soldiers.The architecture is intriguing and beautiful.I am not supporting the purpose of these schools, only the unique design. The unusual B&W archival film together with the current footage, makes this video a truley special program. Very,very highly recommended.

This was probably the most interesting video I've seen on Hitler's Third Reich. Most videos I've watched on this subject are pretty much all the same. But this was completely different. The video not only focused on the unique architecture of the Order Castles, but presented an intriguing insight into the education system of the time and how the Nazi's used the schools to indoctrinate their youth. For those interested in both art and architecture the program is a definite must. All of R.J.Adam's videos are great!!

What an excellent product. Technical quality is flawless but much more important, the subject and the treatment of it is first class.

I remember when at school, studying history, we read about how victors in war since centuries ago destroyed everything related to their enemies. Unfortunately the same thing happened with the Third Reich. Thinking that the Nazi problem was in the hardware instead of the software (ideas on people's minds) the Allied Powers destroyed everything they could put their hands on. Just to mention:

-the New Chancellery building
-the Flak Towers
-The Berghof
-the submarines shelters
-Hitler Bunkers
-Spandau Prison

These were impressive, even beautiful engineering pieces but above all, they had a story to tell. A bad and terrible story, never to happen again, but a story nonetheless.

Thanks to this DVD I could see that some of these Nazi era buildings have survived the anti-Nazi hysteria and we still can learn history from them.

VERY, VERY nice product. I absolutely recommend it

As usual, the producers of these films explore the architecture of the Nazis and invariably the culture & history. You will not see this footage elsewhere - it is material potentially "boring" or of no consequence to the War, made pertinent and interesting by the producers and by the architecture itself.

Very good work, on a/from a different tangent/angle.

Is was a very good documentary on the Hitler Youth. It shows how the Nazi brainwashed their children to make them feel a lot more superior to all the other races. But at the end it didn't succeed.
