Title: " Fatal Attraction of Adolf Hitler, The "
Between 1933 and 1945, the people of Germany surrendered their will to a charismatic demagogue who led them, and much of the world, to destruction. How it happened is the subject of this program. Its focus is on the appeal of Hitler's personality not only to Germans, but also to leaders of other European nations. Viewers see how Hitler's life influenced his leadership style and how he used the Jews as scapegoats whom he blamed for Germany's economic problems. Home movies of Hitler's private life and interviews with those who knew him complete this eerie portrait. It provides a catalyst for classroom discussion about how demagogues come to power and what social and economic conditions make it possible.
