Fred Surber: Well, the understanding I have on the six million is that... like a lot of people believe is like the Nazis in Germany murdered six million people... and according to the war records I've been able to find, pertaining to World War Two, there was something like nearly five million Jews involved, but as far as killing them, they weren't. Most of them were... I don't recall exactly what the term is, to concentration camps.

California Reich informative or Promotive
21 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this and found it an amazing insight into the older days of the ANP or NS movement of the 70's. Its more an educational film but showed as well how some people get involved in politics more as peer pressure or out of loyalty rather than their own beliefs. The indoctrination of youngsters as shown is a sticky line to tread though they should be left to see whats right and wrong for themselves without influence from left or right as the left do so well here in the uk in all schools. Its an informative documentary that makes me wonder why it has had no further release, can anyone shed any light as to whether it is going to see a further release as with the other similar film/documentary Blood in the Face.
