Overview

Synopsis

Mein Kampf
Director Erwin Leiser is most known for this documentary that borrows the title of Hitler's rantings in book form, to present the true story of his rise and fall. (Leiser himself had to flee Germany to escape Nazi persecution.) Using film clips of the result of Nazi atrocities in the death camps and previously unseen footage from the Warsaw Ghetto, Leiser has put together a devastating picture of barbaric inhumanity. He leads up to the outcome of Hitler's insane policies by using still photos, newspaper excerpts, and newsreel footage to detail the German dictator's rise to power. The documentary leaves one major question: how could this homicidal lunatic have been left unchecked to lead the world into the worst conflagration it has ever known? ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

The Bitch of Buchenwald
This documentary chronicles the grisly history of the Buchenwald concentration camp and its notorious female guard, Ilse Koch. Wife of the camp commandant, Karl Koch, Ilse earned the nickname "The Bitch of Buchenwald" for her own unique brand of sadism and torture -- which included fashioning lampshades out of human skin -- and served as the inspiration for the Nazi exploitation film Ilsa, She Wolf Of The SS. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi
