Blood and Honor: Youth Under Hitler




Blood and Honor: Youth Under Hitler
Winner 1982 | Daniel Wilson Productions, Taurus Films

In an era marked by a resurgence of interest in the period of the Nazi rise to dominance in Europe, this five-part mini-series, focusing on the Hitler Youth Movement in 1930s Germany, transcends entertainment and performs a valuable public service. By concentrating on children and childhood, and by presenting the events through the perspective of an adolescent, the drama carefully and dramatically exposes how hate can be taught and nurtured among impressionable minds. This is an excellent example of how quality programming can be an integral part of television.
