Catch a Nazi documentary at Art House Cinema.
The term "Nazi" gets tossed around pretty loosely nowadays. "Final Account" is a critically acclaimed documentary that interviews the last living children of Nazi Germany. The synopsis describes the film as,
An urgent portrait of the last living generation of Hitler`s Third Reich in never-before-seen interviews raising vital questions about authority, conformity, national identity, and their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history.
