    Final Account
    Final Account is a documentary about German citizens who had experienced the second world war firsthand. It really brings a different perspective on the war. It is entirely in German and has English subtitles with German likely being the only language the people are able to speak. Unless if you understand German, you have to watch it to understand it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who's interested in learning more about anything relating to World War II or the Holocaust if they haven't already watched it. It's definitely not for people who aren't fond of documentaries. This might help with people who are trying to learn German as it's the only thing spoken like I mentioned previously.

    Good perspectives being a German during the 3rd Reich
    Interesting context on how these 90 year olds were young children went Hitler gained control. They were raised in a Nazi system, taught to dislike/distrust Jews, seduced to accept National Socialism and then threatened to comply. It's difficult to adequately judge Germans of that era without having the full context, and this documentary provides some of that context. It does not justify them, but it makes one question what you would do in a similar setting - be brave and righteous (and most likely be killed) or comply and live with regret the rest of your life.
