An interesting and well-made series
13 July 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Hitlers Helfer(Hitler`s helpers) is a German series about Hitler`s helpers. This series is from the same people who made the excellent "Hitler- eine Bilanz", and Helfer is produced with the same style that made eine Bilanz so good.

This time around, Hitler is not the main-character, but important people in The Third Reich, which mostly were officers in the German Wehrmacht. Each episode is about a different character from Hitler`s Germany. We all now the "famous" German officers during World War 2 like Wilhelm Keitel, Erich von Manstein and Friederich von Paulus. I always wanted to learn more about these people than just the 10 lines that were in the encyclopedia. Helfer is in many ways the sequel to eine Bilanz, and focuses thoroughly on characters that were only mentioned in eine Bilanz. In Helfer you see the same people that were interviewed in eine Bilanz, but know they talk about Keitel or von Paulus rather than Hitler.

Helfer has the same style and class that I liked about eine Bilanz, and is one of the best German documentaries around.
