99% OF THE REPUBLICANS MAKE THE REST LOOK BAD

It was so interesting for me to watch a 'home-movie' of a man who would be happy to murder me, and my entire family, before he enjoys his breakfast on any given day...

The only thing I have to say is the Bavarian Alps look breath taking. Any attempts of humanise this monster, just is not going to work with me.

In looking at this it appears Eva Braun was manic depressive. In the second film she says people have tried to tell her Hitler was bad but she ignores them because she doesn't want to worry about the bad things. Then she tries to commit suicide twice.

This was a threat to the entire world and I hope like this ever happens again.

paulita hope all you want, it is headed our way. Obama loves the little children too, and as with Hitler, capture the youth. Just like using children to push his gun control in this country.

Yeah and that universal health care policy the Nazis had, HitlerCare, is just like the universal health care policy under Obama. Those Nazi/Democrats just love handing out health care to the sick and dying...traitors. (sarcasm if you couldn't tell you Teaparty tool).

Go read Albert Speer's Inside the Third Reich.

Hitlers private life was the most mundane petit bourgeoisie existence imaginable.

Speer found it intolerable.

Unbelievable to watch Eva Braun go on like everything was all sweetness and light.

I will never understand that time and how things went that far.

I made it to the 1 minute mark. When she started saying how much he loved children and their innocence I had to stop. Sick.

We always like to portray our villains as Evil. Hitler. The kid who shot up children at Sandy Hook. This shows, I think, the terrible truth--that they aren't the kind of pure evil we wish them to be--they are flawed human beings. You see Hitler through another lens and you just see a man. Evil can live side by side in the hearts of many of us. There is a reason that the neighbors are so often surprised to find out that a killer was living next door to them. It is also important to recall that Hitler could not exterminate so many people by himself.

Evil is often mundane.

Sandwiches speak for yourself. In my opinion Hitler was more than just a flawed human being (a flawed human being is someone who, for example, cheats on a spouse) a human being who kills or tells others to kill human beings simply because they don't fit his expectation of perfection is evil.

The films provide an important understanding of the Nazi regime and of the banality of evil.

All these horrors were caused by the funny little man who looked like Charlie Chaplin.

Every time I see clippings of Hitler, I think of how generic he appeared to be. I was born decades after WWII but I often wonder what went through the minds of the German people that allowed the hate to fester that they would obey him. I know there were German people who didn't follow Hitler's philosophy but they seemed to be rare (or at least that's the way it's portrayed). I read that psychiatrists and psychologists tried to explain obedience phenomena through the Milgram Experiment.

The problem with the Milgram Experiment is it failed to take into account that most people unconsciously percieved that they were not actually hurting anyone.Most Americans saw through the ruse.

Banality of evil? I know this is the old worn-out cliche, but what was banal about this regime exactly? Hitler may have been many things, but banal wasn't one of them.

Oh such frolick and fun while millions suffered and died in labor and concentration camps.

Same thing happened in America during slavery yet no one says much about that but people chastise Hitler for doing the same thing to Jews yet America gets a pass for the mistreatment of slaves !

Great article and my admiration for Becker for being able, in his own way, to conquer his fear of a past that should have never been.

The mainstream media wants to keep the story fresh.

Let me count the ways. Only 70 years ago, a pathological lunatic came incredibly close to world domination. He had described, in detail, what he would do when he accomplished his goal. He has already set up the prototype death camps to dispose of the 80% of the world's civilian population after his brutal war machine carries the day. Joseph Stalin stands ready to lend the might of the Soviet Union to help him obliterate Britain and isolate, and defeat the United States. Just 70 years ago. We were rescued by the enormity of his madness. Otherwise, everything that we know and treasure is consumed in the fire. That is the truth, seawolf. And it should never be censored.
