This 5-part documentary by Guido Knopp and the ZDF Contemporary History Department is the first comprehen-sive film portrayal of the young people in the Third Reich. Guido Knopp (born January 29, 1948, in Treysa, Hesse) is a German journalist and author. He is well known in Germany, mainly because he has produced a great number of TV documentaries, predominantly about the "Third Reich" and National Socialism, but also about other topics, such as Stalinism. I hope you gain much from it.
Never has a generation been so completely taken over by a totalitarian state as was the case in Hitler´s Third Reich: at the age of 10 children joined the "Jungvolk" movement, at 14 they joined the Hitler Youth, and at 18 they joined the party, the "Wehrmacht", the SA, or the SS. This 5-part documentary by Guido Knopp and the ZDF Contemporary History Department is the first comprehen-sive film portrayal of the young people in the Third Reich. With in-depth witness statements and some previously unpublished archive material, the documentary demonstrates how Hitler succeeded in gaining power over "his children" through years of manipulation.
