A Newsreel History of the Third Reich Vol. 1 (1990s)

This series A Newsreel History of the Third Reich includes unique footage plundered by Russian Troops in 1945. Compiled as it is from German newsreels which were made under the influence of Goebbels' Ministry of Propaganda these are by no means accurate histories but allow unique insight into how the period leading up to and including WW2 was presented to the German people. Volume 1 deals with the period from the end of the Great War to the emergence of Hitler as the German chancellor. It covers the 1930 collapse of the German economy and the subsequent poverty; the SA implementing the anti-Jewish campaign; the turbulent elections; the death of Hindenburg and the re-building of Germany under the new chancellor amongst other subjects.
