This DVD is simply excellent.
Shows the similarities of two men (Hitler and Stalin) who were deified by the their respective peoples and coupled with circumstances could do anything, and they did. They both unleashed acts of brutalities not only on their own peoples, innocent on not, but also on those of neighboring countries. Both led their countries to ruin and utter destruction. The loss of lives and harshness and sufferings imposed on humanity are beyond the imagination of most of us alive today.
This DVD is timely, especially in the light of the rising wave of populist governments around the world in response to the complex problems facing the peoples of different countries.

Excellent documentary. The rich historical footage cut into the collage of current countryside and of interviews with survivors: Russian and German soldiers and officers. It's frightening to listen to brutal accounts of the old survivors, and seeing no remorse in most.
