Nazis: A Warning from History, The (Dbl DVD)
How could a political party as fundamentally evil and overtly racist as the Nazis come to power? This remains one of the most enigmatic questions of the last century. Acclaimed historian Laurence Rees examines what led a cultured nation at the heart of Europe to commit the atrocities it did. In so doing, he exposes popular myths and encourages understanding of the real forces that led to one of the darkest chapters in modern history. Was it simply the hypnotic power of Hitler's rhetoric? Did the Gestapo really impose themselves by terror on an unwilling population? Through interviews with witnesses and perpetrators, along with archive film and records, this six-part series unveils a more chilling reality.]]>

The interviewer was masterful at his ability to get former Nazi's to open up about what happened and what they did. He brilliantly would ask the questions and let the person answer but after they were done answering he (the interviewer) would just sit quietly and look at the person. The uncomfortable silence made them continue talking and eventually you can tell that they are not only trying to convince him they were justified or had no choice in what they did they were trying to convince themselves as well. I also liked the fact that some that were interviewed did not apologize and in fact still believe they were in the right. If you are a history buff I suggest you buy this. The beginning does give more detailed info on the origins of the Nazi's and why they believed what they did.
