Based on recent research results, the three-part series Hitler's Power puts previous assessments to the test and provides answers to questions that are still relevant today: How could a "nobody" gain such power within a few years? What made people unconditionally join the "Volksgemeinschaft" propagated by Hitler? Why could the Nazi leader be sure of the support of the majority of Germans until the bitter end of the war? Why did they continue to follow the dictator even when the war could no longer be won? How was it possible that the worst crime against humanity, the Holocaust, emanated from Germany?
Historical film footage, photos, documents, graphics, and analyses by renowned international experts impressively demonstrate the system of the so called “Führerstaat” ("leader state") and focus on the relationship between the dictator and the German people.
