Summary
  • For more than fifty years German films about the Third Reich hardly ever featured its leader. Since the late 1990s, however, a wave of Hitler films has been washing over the country. Big-budget cinema productions like Downfall (2004) as well as publicly funded television series have given Hitler an unprecedented prominence and fundamentally recast his image in German popular culture. The present book is a first attempt to take stock of these transformations. A group of international experts discuss the most recent depictions of Hitler in the context of earlier ones and assess their impact on the collective memory of National Socialism in the Berlin Republic
  • "The first book-length study to critically examine the recent wave of Hitler biopics in German cinema and television. A group of international experts discuss films like Downfall in the context of earlier portrayals of Hitler and draw out their implications for the changing place of the Third Reich in the national historical imagination"--
