For more than fifty years, German films about the Third Reich hardly ever featured its leader. Since the late 1990s, however, there has been a steadily increasing number of 'Hitler films'. 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. In Hitler – Films from Germany, a group of international experts take stock of these transformations. Film and cultural historians discuss the most recent depictions of Hitler in the context of earlier ones and critically assess their impact on the collective memory of National Socialism in the Berlin Republic. Enhanced by more than 100 illustrations, this volume brings a fresh, interdisciplinary perspective to the latest Hitler wave.
