The rise of the National Socialist Party in Germany as seen by international press correspondants in Germany


Through the point of view and words of the international press correspondents in Germany, this documentary narrates the advent of the National Socialist Party as the first political force during the period of 1930 to 1933. What did the journalists report about the weaknesses of the German democracy, the consequences of the crash, the struggles between Nazis, Communists and Social Democrats?

What did they see of the spread of misery and violence, of the madness and faith of the supporters of each camp? What can these privileged witnesses tell us of those years, when the brown plague reached Germany through the ballot box?
