The renowned German filmmaker Lutz Becker's the "Double Headed Eagle" is a dramatic documentary, tracing the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party through the social chaos of the Weimar Republic. It shows how they provoked, manipulated and exploited this chaos between 1918 - 1933. Their victims were the vast majority of the politically uncommitted democratic sections of society. The film highlights the anatomy of a disintegrating society and reveals parallels with contemporary social and political problems. By demonstrating these parallels the film makes Hitler's rise more understandable and in many ways more chilling.
