If you're a Prime Member, you can watch the full what-if series by Ridley Scott, titled The Man in the High Castle. Presumption is that the Axis Powers won WWII, what if, what would life in 1962 be like. Trailer is here
Now, to replaying actual history: Hitler, the Rise of Evil
. Fabulous portrayal of Hitler by Robert Carlyle, who knocked me dead in the unforgettable movie, Ravenous.
Hopefully, this poster's copy of the Hitler movie, has no anti-semitic ad to get the 'free book' in the upper right corner while the video (a dramatization of Hitler's rise starring Stockard Channing).. plays. All the other ones I could find in Youtube which will allow offsite play, have ads to anti-semitic 'Zionist' propaganda. All the Hitler movies in Youtube have pro-Nazi commenters who come in on the movies like the liars promoting Windows 8 and 10, come onto articles about it. All disregarding the FACTS which are PROVABLE, all with the same hive mind as the Muslims.
Dang, it's happening all over again in the age 30 and below crowd, mostly white but also many black males. So these movies are more important to watch, than normal. GO READ THE COMMENTS YOURSELF, so you'll know what historical time it is. We're heading toward WWIII, for the mental attitude which gave birth to War 2, is again prevalent. Herdbound anti-semitism is on the rise.
Goes to show that all the truth on the planet, means nothing to anti-semites. Which, accounts for how a Hitler could
rise then.. or now. It's creepy how many of these movies are sponsored by neo-Nazi channels on Youtube: as if they cannot understand the meaning of the movies they post. Be very careful. I don't think the ones below, are from such channels.
Since Part II in that version has 30 minutes cut out, here's a lower-resolution version of the full movie. You'll want to start it at about 2 hours in, for the above Part II also cuts out some of the footage in Part II. Sorry, but all the other posts of this movie are worse (incompetent, anti-semitic sponsors, etc). At least this one sports Spanish subtitles, so you can brush up on your Spanish...
And in case you think Hollywood overstated the case, try watching the next video, which is a compilation of individual Germans who made personal films and wrote letters or diaries.
Next, Hitler In Color.
Again, footage with a personal emphasis, but made by the Nazis themselves, live at the moment, recording everything, so proud of their Fuhrer. What's so shocking about this narrated-by-Brian-Cox video, is not the video itself
-- which has a lot of new footage and in color -- but the comments on the video in Youtube.
Total infestation with neo-Nazis wanting to kill Jews and resurrect the Reich. Ironically, their seedpod CURRENT voices help underscore the story Cox narrates, how a whole nation of people could be so duped. For the CURRENT voices in the comments, clearly are alike duped.. despite FULL FOOTAGE available to prove how wrong they are? So now you know a) how it happened, and b) it will happen again. Pray for Israel, another wave leading to War as I type, is occurring. And now, for what it was and will again be, and why...
So after Poland was taken over, all the Jews were rounded up and thrown into horribly squalid conditions in the infamous Warsaw ghetto. Germans CREATED the squalid ghetto, robbed the Jews of everything they had, took away their means of livelihood too, then film the results as if the Jews wanted to live the way forced upon them. Again: they were robbed, denied all means of livelihood and manner of food and work, treated like pigs. Then, they were filmed to show how squalid the conditions.. which, were blamed on them, as you'll see in this propaganda piece sold to Germans at the time:
Never mind, there were so many Jews who had lived in Europe for centuries, everyone knew better, and knew this movie was a lie. Anti-semitism rots the brain. Become anti-semitic, and you'll believe anything, and become a criminal yourself, overnight.
So of course, Hitler's fall is extensively covered, best to read Shirer and Speer's books, but you really need movies to best 'experience' what it was like. The most famous of the movies is Downfall
; snippets of which, keep making parodies, but the reality was quite awful. Alec Guinness made his own version of Hitler quite believable, too, film called 'Hitler: the Last 10 Days' in American cable, and purchasable in Amazon or Youtube with that title. Sometimes it plays in Comcast.
Shirer's haunting book was made into a movie
, following next below. At 2:06 hrs, you'll hear the familiar number 91,000 prisoners
.. here of Stalingrad, February 1943. But to someone steeped in Bible, that same number first reminds you of Titus' Arch and Josephus' claim of that number being taken in similar triumph at Rome when 2nd Temple fell (filmed below, again at 2:06 hours, but in Russia).
This video charts the chronology more completely than the others. Notice how there is a 12-month or 18-month interval from Jan 30 '33 onward, for the benchmark 'changes' (starting with Hitler's Chancellory). What amazes me, is this: how could it all happen so fast? A hive mentality among the masses is the only explanation. Remember, they didn't have modern technology like we do. Keep that in mind as you watch, for not only Germany was herdbound, but Italy, Russia, Japan, China, even Britan and America, Latin America, and of course the Middle East and Africa (which were still largely of the colony mentality).
All this parading and massing. Hard to realize all the politeness and stress on appearance so attractive in the movies of this period, go hand in hand with the massing, so the politeness and stress on attractive appearance, fitting in -- tells quite a different (horrible) story...
One of the best versions of Hitler's fall, is The Bunker
starring Anthony Hopkins; am surprised to see its VHS version in Youtube. Hopkins' transformation into der Fuhrer
is absolutely stunning. You'll want to buy the movie too, once you see even part of it, below.
To get a sense of the authenticity, here's a colorized German propaganda film (should be in public domain) about the career of Adolf Hitler. The voiceover is done much later, recompiling the film material to tell its own version of how bad Hitler was. So you get the contemporary worshippy version with the sound off, and the newsreel-sounding condemnatory version with the sound on. Speaker sounds very like a young Anthony Hopkins, but isn't. Subtitles are in Swedish.
The classic Propaganda film, Triumph of the Will
, is finally in Youtube. It's in public domain, but may yet be banned in Germany, so maybe if you're there, you'll see a 'not available' message, here. I used part of it for my 3/72 KJVOB video (showing KJVO is Bible Nazism). So when you see that part, now you'll know the original context.
Warning: this is a very gross and frightening movie. It has no bloodshed. Rather, it's frightening to realize the film is a live recording of the Nurnberg rally made 19+ months after Hitler became Chancelor; all that massing, all that organization, all that tirelessness and slavishness.. is not merely people being forced. You can learn a lot about the psychology of an audience by the movies they like, and this one, unbelievably, was a hit. The same mindset exists today in the young, so past is prologue. You can adjust it to 1080p, but probably only 480p real resolution will result, as the original film was made while Hitler was in power.
As always, if you click on any of the Youtube links, you not only can see the video in Youtube, but there is a sidebar of many more related movies, as well. Submit it will be important to know this time in history, for we're about to repeat it.
English translations of speech swatches, so you can better hear his personal appeals, understand how he could capture the hearts of Germans so easily:
And many Germans took personal films
during the War, some of which are assembled here: the assembly focuses on the fall, from Barbarossa forward. (Video's Youtube title is wrong, as you'll see within the first 5 minutes of the film.)
