Title: Third Reich: Rise & Fall
Category: News, Politics & World War II

Third Reich: The Rise & Fall uncovers familiar anecdotes & fascinating details about the people who comprised the Nazi Party, & raids the treasure trove of archives the Nazis left behind, including rarely seen German newsreel recordings along with other unique footage carried home by Russian troops.

In History’s two-part, four-hour Special Presentation: Third Reich, rare & never-before-seen amateur footage tells the epic story of the Third Reich as it’s never been told before: through the eyes of the people who lived it. A unique perspective on the rise of Nazi Germany & how millions of people were so vulnerable to fascism, told through rare & never-before-seen amateur films shot by the Germans who were there. How did the Germans experience the Allied victory in World War 2? Rarely & never-before-seen amateur films recount the catastrophic downfall of the Third Reich through the eyes of the people who lived it: the Germans themselves.

As a slimmed-down history of Nazi-ruled Germany during the 1930s & 1940s, The Third Reich offers a stylish & engaging look at the rise & fall of a nation. Comprised entirely of vintage film clips shot by Russian troops, journalists, German citizens & others, it’s a visual tour-de-force of a terrifying era. Divided into two 90-minute halves (“The Rise” & “The Fall”, each given their own DVD), The Third Reich reminds viewers of the horrors of war, the dangers of a totalitarian government and the fragility of human life.
