People who are already well informed and well versed in Hidden History, know that there were many forces behind, and reasons for, the creation of Adolf Hitler. So although the title of this documentary is "How Europe Created Adolf Hitler" it doesn't quite cover the entire Hitler backstory.
I'm posting the documentary because it consists entirely of archival footage, that shows extremely well how demagogues and dictators, in this case Hitler, attract their followers by creating and playing into people's fears, and presenting themselves as "the solution" to every conceivable socio-political and economic problem.
In my opinion it is highly valuable to compare the images and rhetoric that are shown, to those of modern day political campaigns and political rallies around the world.
Notice the similarities, especially with regard to the upcoming US presidential elections. (for more, see the playlist in this article)
The history that you have forgotten has never been more relevant.
During the Six-Day War, Israel attacked and nearly sank the USS Liberty belonging to its closest ally, the USA. Thirty-four American servicemen were killed in the two-hour assault by Israeli war planes and torpedo boats. Israel claimed that the whole affair had been a tragic accident based on mistaken identification of the ship.
The American government accepted the explanation..
For more than 30 years many people have disbelieved the official explanation but have been unable to rebut it convincingly. This documentary uses startling new evidence to reveal the truth behind the seemingly inexplicable attack. The film combines a dramatic reconstruction of the events, with new access to former officers in the US and Israeli armed forces and intelligence services who have decided to give their own version of events.
Interviewees include President Lyndon Johnson's Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara, former head of the Israeli navy Admiral Shlomo Errell and members of the USS Liberty crew.
