I love the way this movie covers a rage of characters.
1 October 2018 | by whitewater-41325See all my reviews

Not many movies of Wold War 2 covers how a person comes to join a Nazi Patry. What makes someone turn to such extremes. I Think this movie doesn't get enough credit for that . I'm not sympathizing with any type of Nazi but this movie gives a wide range of outlooks. I think it's an excellent teaching tool of what can happen to all people when they become angry and frustrated. I wish more movies would cover this topic. Most of us know about the Jewish persecutions . I think it's import to understand the mind of people who are seemingly loving and normal to turn to a party with such hatred. I think a lot of them were tricked and we need to know about this so it can never happen again !! Because right now it's happening in the USA and it's horrifying . It does not happen overnight and this movie does a great job of building up to that !
