The Germany We Chose To See!
23 April 2011 | by SylSee all my reviews

Frank Capra put together this compelling documentary about Germany as a country from it's history, culture, and ethnicity. According to the film, Germany is a country of hard-working and prosperous people who love their country, their leader, and the world. But we know better now after 66 years, Germany's leaders in the Third Reich had a diabolical plan to exterminate millions of people and propagandize the notion of superior race. You have to take the documentary's time period. 1945 was the end of World War II. The concentration camps were omitted probably only because the world had already so much to understand about this country called Germany under Hitler's reign. I can only believe that Capra would have included the concentration camps if possible. By 1945, the world was recovering and the news of the holocaust would surely shock the world again if they hadn't known the details of monstrosity and inhumanity at the hands of the German Nazis themselves. It's still worth watching to see how a country of millions can be fooled by a madman and his minions.
