Mein Kampf is a rather disjointed documentary giving heavy emphasis to Hitler's rise to power and the occupation of Poland, subjects that probably deserve their own films. If the same story with variations was told in the same length of time about each occupied country we'd have a 9 hour film.

Two things this documentary had going for it that I liked. It gave the best account I've seen of Adolph Hitler's years of the development of the Nazi party and how it grew. That part ought to be required viewing in America, it will seem frighteningly familiar as to what is happening now.

The other thing is a lot of previously unseen, at least by me of footage that none other than the Propaganda Minister was responsible for. Some even which Joe Goebbels shot personally. With minimal commentary they tell their own tale of the Third Reich.

Heartbreaking in the footage of the Warsaw ghetto were the lamentations in Hebrew. No other words were needed.

Not the best told tale of the Third Reich but good enough.
