WAR DOCUMENTARIES VIDEO TAPES
Suggested for scholarly and educational use.
The swift collapse of the Third Reich in the spring of 1945
brought, with the surrender, mountains of films and documents covering the entire
period of the Nazi regime. Perhaps no other period in history is as well documented.
Many of these films are now historical documents of a time when madness and
hate overran mankind. Some films made in those years do not reflect current
official views of Germany, its people, or other nations and should be used only
with extreme parental discretion and guidance. Almost 65 years have passed since
the terrible holocaust. The memories and the consequences are still with us
today. HOW...WHY... could such a system have arisen and flourished? How many
times have the questions been asked? How many answers have been offered? The
voices on these video tapes are the voices of history... perhaps those who listen
today can help answer the questions posed by these terrible years!
Adolf HitlerMP 6029
U.S.A., English language, Documentary, 55 min., b&w - Now and again, the tide of human history brings with it a ruler so barbaric and despicable that it scars our civilization forever.

Adolf HitlerVS 13230
English dialogue, 101 min., b&w - You will never forget the incredible, exclusive footage from all stages of Adolf Hitler's rise and fall from this, the darkest period in human history. Born of humble parentage in 1889, Hitler at first fancied himself an artist, but he found few offers for his work in the coffee houses of Vienna. Later he served, without particular distinction, in the Kaiser's army in World War I. It was in the 1920's that Hitler made his first bid for political power. By 1933 Germany had commander control of 'Der Fuehrer'. Within a few months conscription was introduced, soon to be followed by the harassment and eventual extermination of the Jews.
Adolf Hitler: Black FoxDO 5
1962, English. dialogue, 89 min., b&w - Narrated by Marlene Dietrich, this is the story of the most feared and fanatical national leader in history: his bitter boyhood in Austria, his ruthless drive to power in a defeated Germany and his wars of conquest against all of Europe. A winner of the 1962 Academy Award for Best Documentary.

U.S.A. 1945, 58 min., b&w - Two War Department historical films documenting the activities of these armies in 1944. Graphic action in Klenheim, Stolberg, Mausbach and the Hurtigen Forest. Excellent uncensored combat footage.
The Architecture of Doom
English lang., 1991, color/b&w, ca. 119 min. - The video captures the inner workings of the Third Reich and illuminates the Nazi aesthetic in art, architecture, and popular culture. From Nazi party rallies to the final days inside Hitler's bunker, this sensational film shows how Adolph Hitler rose from being a failed artist to creating a world of ponderous kitsch and horrifying terror. Hitler worshipped ancient Rome and Greece, and dreamed of a new Golden Age of monumental, classical art and architecture, populated by beautiful, patriotic Aryans. "Degenerate" artists and "inferior" races were seen as sub-human vermin, and had no place in his lurid fantasy. As this riveting, critically-acclaimed film shows, the Nazis went from banning the art of modernists like Picasso to forced euthanasia of the retarded and sick, and finally to the persecution of homosexuals and the extermination of Jews.
