Hitlers Hitparade

March 27th, 2009

Recently I watched the documentary Hitlers Hitparade, a collage which risks an unusual view on the german national socialist era. In contrast to the usual martial, black-and-white and deliberately deterrent pictures this movie mixes propaganda, colour and amateur videos, cabaret and entertainment; accompanied by music from the era (also swingin german music!).

This selection gives an idea of the allurement of the national socialism. At the same time, the movie is creating a second film with all the horror from that time in the mind of the beholder – it stays politically correct. “Hitler’s Hitparade” won a Grimme-Preis.

PS: I get similar goose bumps by the scene “Tomorrow Belongs to us” from the movie cabaret, which was was censored first.
