Image 1 / 5

The Rise of the Nazi Party recounts the emergence of the infamous political party through archive film footage, interviews and dramatic reconstructions, and carries on the chilling story after the war until now, with the continued rise of Neo-Nazis. The series reveals step by step how the National Socialists exploited the economic turmoil of their time, got into power in Germany in 1933 and then led their nation into a nightmare of everyday brutality, genocide and military defeat. It follows the leading personalities who played out the drama of destroying democracy, murdering opponents and bringing destruction to Europe and the world. Hitler, Goering, Himmler, Goebbels, all played their part in giving voters what they wanted and then betrayed them with a vicious totalitarian state.
