The Nazis - A Warning From History exposes the popular myths surrounding the rise and fall of the Third Reich. The series explores how the Nazis came to power, how they ruled, how they treated their occupied territories and, above all, how a cultured nation could be responsible for such acts of inhumanity. Through compelling interviews and archive film and records, the series paints an astonishing and often unpalatable picture of Nazi rule. Contemporaries recall the true extent of Hitler's power; eye¬witnesses describe the horrors perpetrated on the Eastern Front; specially shot film in Lithunia reveals the development of the 'Final Solution' and ordinary Germans shed new light on the relationship between the Party and the people.
