On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the "seizure of power", SPIEGEL TV undertakes a unique journey through the darkest chapter of German history. SPIEGEL TV author Michael Kloft tells the annual chronicle of the Third Reich, with rare, sometimes unpublished film footage of Nazi dictatorship even beyond propaganda. Three famous scientists help him in the depiction of politics, everyday life and the events of war and crime in the Nazi state. Sir Ian Kershaw has set standards worldwide with his Hitler biography. Brigitte Hamann sheds light on the fascination for the Führer in her groundbreaking studies and Götz Aly has described the "well-being dictatorship" of the 1930s and ruthlessly uncovered the plundering of Europe by the Germans in his book "Hitlers Volksstaat".
