Autour de lui, il y a ses principaux commandants et ministres, notamment Joseph Goebbels, ainsi que sa maîtresse Eva Braun, sa secrétaire personnelle Traudl Junge, son architecte en chef Albert Speer et une poignée de soldats et officiers. Pendant quelques jours, le führer ordonne divers mouvements de troupe dans l'espoir d'empêcher l'avance des Soviétiques sur la capitale. Mais il devient bientôt évident que la guerre est perdue. Alors qu'autour de la chancellerie les tirs de mortier annoncent l'arrivée imminente de l'ennemi, Hitler et son entourage se préparent à mourir ou à fuir." [(c) Médiafilm]

Robert Jackson, a 53-year-old Supreme Court Justice from New York, appeared before the Nuremberg Tribunal on November 20, 1945. He was the chief prosecutor in the first-ever trial to put an entire national government in the dock. While governments and armies had been waging wars for centuries--an action not punishable according to international law--the actions of the German Nazi party during World War II were regarded as so abhorrent that the Allied victors chose to prosecute the Nazi regime as a brutally implemented conspiracy--charging the surviving representatives of the Nazi elite with the murder of millions of people. The Nuremberg Trials, from the PBS American Experience collection, features rare archival material and eyewitness accounts to recreate this dramatic tribunal; an event guaranteeing that crimes against humanity would never again go unpunished

A minor German princess with connections to Swedish royalty, the future Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia began as the handpicked bride of the future Czar. When he ascended the throne, Catherine plotted his overthrow, took power, and began to pull her country out of the dark ages. She led Russia for 30 years, creating an enviable dynasty build on cunning and ruthlessness, in addition to newfound notions of justice, progress, and a centralized government. Ahead of her time, Catherine the Great stands as a model for light in a time of great cultural and sociological darkness. In blending discussion of the facts by scholars--each presenting a particular slant on Catherine's life and conduct--with fictional recreations of pivotal events in her life, this film presents a well-rounded portrait of 18th Century Europe's most 'enlightened' despot

Soul kitchen by Fatih Akin( Visual )
4 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Soul Kitchen" is Zinos Kazantsakis's humdrum restaurant in a working-class neighborhood of Hamburg. The food is mostly frozen, unceremoniously zapped in the microwave, or thrown into a vat of bubbling grease. He loves his restaurant and his girlfriend Nadine, even after she leaves him for an assignment in China. Wanting to liven up the restaurant, Zinos hires an out-of-work three-star chef, lets his ex-con brother Ilias spin records, and seeks out new clientele. Soon Soul Kitchen is reborn as Hamburg's newest hot spot. On a whim, Zinos flies to China to rekindle his relationship with Nadine leaving his brother in charge. There is also a slipped disc, a hard-drinking, chain-smoking waitress, a scheming real-estate developer, a Turkish "physio-healer," and a high stakes poker game in the mix. But the film is not about food or love; it's about family, life and human relationships, with a lingering nostalgia for a time when eating out implied getting dead drunk, stuffing one's face with cholesterol and kissing across the table

Graham Dorrington is an enthusiastic English aeronautical engineer on a mission to revive the airship, that ill-fated aeronautic conveyance otherwise known as the dirigible or zeppelin, to fly over the Amazon canopy. His eagerness is diminished by the memory an incident 10 years earlier, in which photographer Dieter Plage was killed. This film records an expedition to Guyana, where Dorrington and his small crew of researchers, technicians, and porters struggle with the elements, the laws of physics, and one another as they try to get a new vessel off the ground. Mr. Herzog, who has made a specialty of finding obsessives and eccentrics who push themselves to extremes, asks questions, films, and narrates the result
Spies of Mississippi ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the spring of 1964, the civil rights community is gearing up for "Mississippi Freedom Summer," during which hundreds, if not thousands, of mostly white student activists from the North will link up with mostly black freedom workers to accomplish what the Mississippi power structure fears the most: registering black people to vote. For the segregationists, Freedom Summer is nothing less than a declaration of war. The state responds by swearing in hundreds of new deputies, stockpiling tear gas and riot gear, and preparing the jails for an influx of summer "guests." But the most powerful men in the state have another weapon to fight integration. They have quietly created a secret, state-funded spy agency, the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission, answering directly to the Governor. During the height of the civil rights movement, sovereignty commission operatives employed a cadre of black operatives who infiltrated the movement, rooting out its future plans, identifying its leaders, and tripping up its foot soldiers. By gaining the trust of civil rights crusaders, they gathered crucial intelligence on behalf of the segregationist state."--Container
