The Nazis Called Us Heroes

45' (ENG, GER)

From Nazi hero to pacifist - three soldiers tell their fascinating story.

Three young men that once had an admiration for the Nazi regime had a strong change of heart after joining the German Wehrmacht in World War 2. Hans Deibl, a Stuka pilot in North Africa, Hans Höller, a tank hunter that fought in Normandy, and Peter Spoden, a nighttime fighter pilot, all became devote pacifists after their experiences in the war. Authentic interviews combined with archival footage allows us to immerse ourselves in the stories of these men. We learn how they were originally enticed by the Nazi ideology, how their minds were changed, and how they look at the war today.
