Presented by Dr Christopher Andrew.
"For me Hitler was a superhuman being, somewhere between man and a god ... I adored him and was ready to die for him." Guenther Triedwindy, former member of the Hitler Youth.
This is a cautionary tale for any age about what can happen when a civilised country surrenders its will to a charismatic leader. Now, 100 years after Hitler's birth, one question remains to be answered. How was it that the Germans could appoint into office, then follow into ruin, a leader who in the judgment of history was a hateful tyrant? This new film, BBC Television's only biography of Hitler, contains exclusive footage not seen in Britain before. Eyewitnesses interviewed include Germans who speak openly for the first time about their enthusiasm for Hitler and also the only German who ever challenged Hitler about the Final Solution.
