A newsreel history of the Third Reich( Visual )

36 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Includes unique footage plundered by Russian Troops in 1945. Compiled as it is from German newsreels which were made under the influence of Goebbels' ministry of propaganda, these are by no means accurate histories but allow unique insight into how the period leading up to and including WW2 was presented to the German people. Volume 1 deals with the period from the end of the Great War to the emergence of Hitler as the German chancellor. It covers the 1930 collapse of the German economy and the subsequent poverty; the SA implementing the anti-Jewish campaign; the turbulent elections; the death of Hindenburg and the re-building of Germany under the new chancellor amongst other subjects."--Container

This film presents a brief biography of Jane Austen (16 December 1775-18 July 1817), and explores the landscapes where she spent her life. Austen lived her entire life as part of a small and close-knit family located on the lower fringes of English gentry, and her works analyze the novels of sensibility of the second half of the eighteenth century. Austen's biting social commentary was aimed at moral issues, principally the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security. Her whose works of romantic fiction set among the gentry have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature, while her historical importance hinges on her contribution to the transition to nineteenth-century realism
