Jazzy score backs typical stock footage fest
19 September 2001 | by (you-know-where) – See all my reviews

For some reason my local PBS station ran this flick in the mid-1990s, and I caught all three (two-hour-long) episodes. Like most documentaries without re-enactments, the film is just footage from the period and interviews with survivors. What made it interesting was the brassy opening music, which sounded more like the score for a docu on gangland Chicago then one on Nazis.

Following (loosely) the structure of the book on which it is based, each episode chronologically followed the origins of Adolf Hitler, the milieu he grew up in, WWI, his discovery of the German Worker's Party, how he made this group of right-wing cranks into the Nazi Party, the Depression, his rise to power, the Nazification of Germany, WWII, the defeat of Germany, the Allied discovery of the Holocaust. The last hour of the show, I think, was taken up discussing the "Final Solution," with an interview of a survivor who was a child when he was sent to one of the death camps.

Despite the amount of material, I think the book is a better chronicler of what went on those twelve years. A good companion film is Alain Resnais' French short "Night & Fog."
