Director Michael Kloft reveals the history of the Third Reich, as told through the letters that the people of Germany sent to their führer, Adolph Hitler. Recently unearthed from a clandestine Russian archive, the incredible cache of over 100,000 handwritten letters conveys the hopes, dreams, and admiration of everyday Germans to their charismatic leader - along with the occasional voice of dissent. Though listening to the words of the people in such a crucial moment in world history, we get a sweeping picture of the mood of the day, and the many ways in which Germany changed from the time Hitler seized power, to the moment his regime came crashing down.
