Plot Synopsis

Using archival footage and eyewitness accounts by former Hitler Youth, this two-part documentary explores how a totalitarian regime managed to turn children into soldiers. In Berlin in 1945, the Third Reich is in its final days, and its last combatants are teens not yet 15 years old. Given their young age, their inexperience and the overwhelming Soviet numbers, they have no hope of winning. But just a few years earlier, they had pledged their life to Hitler. They are going to stick to their promise and fight to the end. How did Hitler, between 1933 and 1945, manage to build an exclusive relationship with this generation, supplanting parents, family, school and church with the Nazi Party?
