Movie Details

Hitler's creed not only allowed him to rid Germany of everyone he deemed undesirable, but also made it possible for him to greedily take land and wealth. Charlton Heston narrates this episode of Secrets of War that examines how Hitler's forces went about stealing numerous art treasures, gold, and other items belonging to the wealthy during his pillaging reign. Professor James Cooper, Isabel Vincent, and Rabbi Gunther Plaut were among those interviewed for this program. Professor Jean Ziegler, a member of the Swiss parliament, also shares her critical views of Switzerland's actions during World War II. The video features background footage shot in Paris, Bern, and Geneva. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
