The Rise Of The Nazi Party

About The Programme

This series reveals how the Nazis exploited the economic turmoil of their time, came into power in 1933, and then led Germany into a nightmare of everyday brutality, genocide and military defeat.

It follows the leading party figures responsible for destroying democracy in their country, murdering opponents, and bringing destruction to Europe and the world. Hitler, Goering, Himmler and Goebbels all played their part in giving voters what they wanted – and then betrayed them with a vicious totalitarian state.

This series also investigates the continued activity of today’s Neo-Nazis – could such an awful situation happen again?
