    "I've always been fascinated by how Hitler organized his army of Nazis. Don't get me wrong. I condemn the deaths and lose of morality with what he has done. But isn;t it fascinating how he was able to pull together these men towrds a common cause? Him, a one man. I must say he must be charismatic. But oh well. That has come to an end. His Nazis gotta pay for the crimes."

    "This film is good as this shows how extremist belief systems can get. I mean, it's not bad aspiring for your race to become supreme. What might be bad is killing other people for it. That's just not healhthy. This film explored various perspectives on this matter."

    "I know there's been lots of docimentaries about Hitler and such, yet why is it sitll such a good subject to tackle about? BBC was able to analytically tackle this subject and this is so much more educational. I got to learn lots of insights from this."
