- Hitler and the Occult Woven all through the Nazi Party history, and the rise of Hitler to power, are racist occult principles. Certain writers and groups in Austria and Germany developed ideas of the Aryian race, rewriting history to say the Aryian's were Nordic (rather than Persian), for example. Hitler became deeply steeped in that information, and took on a sacred mission in which the Germanic Peoples (designated as a Noble Race) would forge itself in the fire of war into the Superior Race. Part of that meant fulfilling the role of Noble Races, by conquering and suppressing designated weaker or demonic races, such as the Jews. They were fanatics who rewrote history, believed in pseudo-science, ethnic lies, and the legend of a Master Race. A big flaw of this movie, however, is that it's full of experts from the Simon Wiesenthal Center. While that group has done a wonderful job of documenting Germany's atrocities against the Jews, they do have a vested interest in spinning history to serve their needs. The mass murder of Jews during WWII is hardly the only time mass murder has been perpetrated. Mass murder has occurred plenty of other times against other cultures -- for example the Turkish genocide of the Armenians in the early 1900's.
- The Rise of the Third Reich How is it that the German people gave Hitler and the Nazi party full power? This documentary from The History Channel looks at that question, rather than focusing on how that party grabbed power. Using words written by German people of the 1920's and 1930's, as well as home movies and documentary movies, the story of the Rise of the Third Reich is told from the perspective of the people of Germany. The main idea presented is that until 1932-33, Germans had dismissed the Nazi party as irrelevant, but that quickly events occurred where the Nazi's were ruthlessly in charge and dissent was impractical or impossible.
