Intelligent, powerful and fascinating, 15 March 2012
Author: runamokprods from US

This documentary explores a much under-examined element of Hitler's Germany. German citizens, some of high army rank or social status, who risked everything, and usually forfeited their lives to try to stop Hitler.

These people had nothing to gain, and everything to lose. They could of gone along quietly, and kept their lives and their life styles, But instead they trade it all to fight for an ideal.

The film-making itself can be a bit dry; lots of talking heads, WW II footage and stills, and fairly dispassionate sounding narrators telling us the facts. But the stories themselves are heartbreaking – especially the desperate attempts to warn the outside world what was coming, getting only mistrust and indifference in response.

Also remarkable are the bits of actual footage from the show trials the Nazi's gave these men before killing them. Their quiet, brave dignity in the face of death is deeply powerful.
