    It took less than 10 years for Hitler to set up the concentration camps, many of which became centers for mass killing. As research and archaeological exploration continue, this documentary reveals the established historiographical elements to explain how a system of concentrating populations so quickly became the rationalized apparatus of genocide.

    It is a word that sends a chill down the spine: "Ahnenerbe". Driven by a scientific megalomania, the race for new discoveries led the institution to carry out countless acts of barbarism. Stored on hundreds of microfilms which are only now available, the reports from this institution reveal the gruesome secrets of science according to Hitler.

    Hjalmar Schacht is a largely forgotten figure. And yet, Hitler's rise to power depended on him. Adapted from the novel The Devil's Banker by Jean-François Bouchard, this documentary paints the portrait of a fascinating character, at once intellectually brilliant and imbued with an icy cynicism, and who, paradoxically, was never a member of the Nazi party, despite being one of its pillars.

Very good, a good variety of sources and subjects covered. As a WW 2 buff, I always appreciate new insights and information. To all deniers and haters: There are forces greater than Judaism, like ambition, greed and psychopathic, suicidal narcissism.

Nicely presented, but I have a problem.
This has nothing to do with denial. The deaths happened. But I do think they are presented all too neatly and inaccurately. Many died of illness that happens with poor sanitation, weakness, lack of food, lack of medications, and cramped conditions. The next killer is oh so inaccurate to an engineer like myself. Each time they use the word Diesel with Carbon Monoxide makes me shake my head at the ignorance. Carbon Monoxide is produced in such low quantities from Diesel that it was a waste t even try using them. Gasoline is far more deadly but they are never mentioned, just Diesel. Next, Zyclon B was a widely used insecticide, I mean very widely and internationally. No deaths were recorded from that use, but somehow someone got the idea to put it in a enclosed cell with a bunch of prisoners? No, I suspect it was used as an insecticide especially to kill typhus carrying fleas and it was so used that the weak died. Going back to the Diesels, reports were given at trials saying that people fell out of the Zyclon B cells red in color. Since the base of Zyclon B is cyanide they should have been blue. Red is associated with Carbon Monoxide. Personally I think people did not know exactly how people died, but they died. That should be more said rather than a finger pointing inaccurately at what the murder agent was.

Great attention to detail focuses on
some of the more gruesome and insidious aspects from the camps.

INSIDE HITLER’s KILLING MACHINE narrows the focus by looking first at the building of concentration camps and the methodology behind them. It’s shocking, as is most every discovery revealed in this 3 part series. It is definitely not for the faint of heart or sensitive spirit.

The photography includes pictures from the camps of skeletal bodies in various stages of life or death that have been victimized by medical testing, much of it bizarre or purposely torturing. At times, it’s so horrific I needed to FF the film.

This short series is not what I would call “entertaining” - it’s informative and perhaps best used for research purposes. The first two episodes were physical, medical, violent, torturous. Episode three was no walk in the park but it was easier to watch. Finance & social constructs are the focus of this in depth look into Hitler’s Chief financial guy, The Devil’s Banker. The eyes of this guy are soulless, devoid of emotion, cold to the point cadaver; MAJORLY CREEPY!!!

Well done but tough viewing, best suited for seasoned WW2 students or aficionados 🍿

Timely Reminder
This documentary is extremely informative, covers a lot of issues, and goes straight at the hate, violence, and inhumanity for which the Nazis are infamous. In times like ours, with the rise in authoritarianism, nationalism, xenophobia, general hate, and violence, programs like this one are extremely important, to remind us what ordinary human beings are capable of doing to other human beings. It should be watched as a history lesson, and a warning.
This is a well done documentary, in three episodes. The history is presented in a responsible way, without dulling the horrors of what Hitler and his cronies did. The episode which delves into the camps themselves can be difficult to watch, at times, however we should never lose the shock of that kind of senseless brutality and victimization. Some of the issues presented could have included more detailed information, for instance, the background of antisemitism and nationalism in Germany, which would add to the understanding of how such things occur, and guide people observing nations in the present day.
The information presented is factual, and not over dramatized. Usage of contemporary film and photography is appropriate, and enhances understanding of the issues discussed. This is one production that doesn't vary wildly in volume from one section to another, or with extra loud background music. I would recommend this to anyone wanting information about the abominable treatment of human beings by the Nazi regime.
Note: As I write this review, Afghanistan has been overrun by the Taliban. It is my fervent hope that people who would watch this documentary series would also be the kind of people who would be aware of what happens in that unfortunate country. The world is already knowledgeable of what China is doing, without repercussion. It is up to all of us to not let our governments off the hook of moral responsibility, when other people are forced to suffer at the hands of tyrannical regimes. If we become so immune, the next time it could be us.

never forget the 100 billion lost in the camps
This stuff is constantly repackaged to remind everyone that whites are guilty and Jews are victims. Jews have milked holocaust sympathy tirelessly since ww2, gaining thrir own nation as well as slandering any critics as "Anti-semites", which is totally the worst thing to be
