Videos / Documentaries:

There are hundreds of documentaries available concerning Hitler and/or the era leading up to the triumph of the NAZIs.

Rather then attempting to list all of the “documentaries” I have viewed, I am only listing those which I have in my possession:

(Interestingly, Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) was credited as “Treatment Adviser” on this film. “According to Peter Tanner, one of the film's editors, Hitchcock's concern was that ‘we should try to prevent people thinking that any of this was Hitch was very careful to try to get material which could not possibly be seen to be faked in any way.’"
