It's 1964. What if Hitler had won the war?
Did You Know?
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
The film begins with the Allies defeated at Normandy in 1944, so this is where reality parts company with Historical fact. Although later on there are several references to Heydrich still being alive, whereas in reality he was assassinated in 1942 by Czech Patriots, it is stated in the original novel by Robert Harris that Heydrich survived the attack. This aspect is particularly important because the novel deals with the Gestapo killing the attendant to the Wannassee conference and therefore the architects of the Final Solution, so Heydrich is one of the targets.
