Good source of information about Himmler
18 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Throughout the documentary, I did not feel that it's purpose was to show a humanized image, as the only face of Himmler. It is clear from it's course that Himmler was multifaceted, and as well a previous review said, if man were only good or only bad, our world would be too simple.

While Himmler was a caring father, he was anti-Semitic and had prejudiced ideas, as most of the Nazi generals of the time. This is shown as clearly as water.

The documentary is very interesting and presents us with incredible scenes of the time, some of the very trajectory of Himmler, other scenes of everyday life in Nazi Germany.

Watch the film without preconceptions and I'm sure that it will be at least one good source of information about this historical character. For lovers of the history of World War II, this is a must see.
