Storyline

Fictional historical account of what might have happened if Adolf Hitler had won the Second World War. Germany has corralled all European countries into a single state called Germania, and continues fighting against the Soviet Union. It is now 1964 and Germany's war crimes against the Jews have so far been kept a secret. Germany believes that an alliance with the United States would finally beat the Soviet war machine. As his 75th birthday approaches, Hitler wants to talk peace with President Joseph Kennedy. An SS homicide detective and an American journalist stumble into a plot to destroy all evidence of the genocide; evidence that could destroy the peace process with America and evidence that Nazi and SS leaders will stop at nothing to keep hidden.

Trivia

After President Kennedy cancels his meeting with Hitler and drives away, a very quick three second shot reveals a tall silver haired man, wearing a gray SS uniform, standing on a VIP platform next to several German generals. This man is intended to be Reinhard Heydrich who, in Fatherland's version of the future, became the Reichsfuhrer-SS after Heinrich Himmler. See more »

Goofs

A Suspenceful "What if" Thriller!

The scenario in "Fatherland" is what would have happened if Germany had won WWII. Much of Europe will still be under Nazi rule and the Russians and Germans kept fighting. Our two main charecters is a divorced father who spends time with his son and is also an SS officer. The other one is a female American Journalist assigned to cover the peace summit with Adolph Hitler and US president Kennedy. This events also coincides with what would have been Hitler's 75th birthday. Together they gradually uncover an aweful crime committed durring the war and the gestapo is resorting to any means neccesery to keep it quiet. Mant High ranking Nazi officials end up dead. I found this to be an enjoyable movie. It's more of a thriller than a Drama! You almost think that did really happen. 9/10
