Critical reception[ edit ] Giving the film four-out-of-four stars, Roger Ebert acknowledged that it was one of the "riskiest gambles a filmmaker has taken in a long time," but added " here is the genius of the movie there is nothing cheap or unworthy about the approach," and ultimately concluded that it was a "magnificent film, full and tender and funny and charming. Forman also received the Directors Guild of America Award for his work.
ISBN Nazi black magic and the anti-christ order Heinrich Himmler, whose arrest as a traitor Hitler had ordered on 28 April for negotiating with the Allies, was captured by a British patrol on 23 May. Hitler had sown seeds of the deepest hatred between Nazis and Communists in his teaching and in the cruelty and mass murder he had launched in Russia.
Now it was the turn of the Soviets.
Nazism reached its end in a Berlin turned into a battleground of unparalleled violence, fire and brutality as the Soviet forces dealt blows of destruc-tion and revenge. It was as if the Satanic essence of Nazism shone through the flames and the ruins.
From 20 November to 1 October the Nuremberg International Tribunal tried 24 members of the Nazi hierarchy as war criminals, accusing them of crimes 'against Peace, War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity Twelve were sentenced to death, Bormann in his absence. Goering poisoned himself shortly before he was due to be executed.
Von Schirach and Speer were sentenced to 20 years, von Neurath to 15 and Admiral Doenitz to 10 years. Lesser lights, such as obscure S. Many Nazis thus paid with their lives for the misery and death they unleashed upon the world in seeking to clamp their creed of hatred and domination upon its peoples.
Can the mystery of the evil of Nazism be explained? Was there a Satanic nucleus at the heart of it? One inter-pretation of its nature that should be mentioned is the link between Nazism and the alleged attachment to black magic and occultism of Hitler and his inner circle, including Goering, Himmler, Goebbels, Ley and, in the early days, Dietrich Eckart and Professor Karl Haushofer.
Hitler, according to what may seem to many people a far-fetched belief, was the medium through whom contact was made with supernatural powers of evil. Hermann Rauschning, who observed Hitler with a cold and analytical eye, declares that he was a medium, 'possessed by forces outside himself - almost demoniacal forces'.
Rudolf Olden, political editor of the Berliner Tageblatt in the days of Nazism's rise to power, remarked how the overwhelming, almost superhuman Niagara of words that poured forth during Hitler's speeches sometimes reached a climax during which he literally 'spoke in tongues' and seemed possessed.
Hitler's mediumistic powers supposedly provided the link with Satanic forces which spoke through him and led to the black magic and occult practices in the inner circle of Nazi leaders.
Insignia of Hitler's SA in Rauschning also reports in 'Hitler Speaks' a warning given to Hitler by a percipient woman in his circle, one of the few who dared to speak forthrightly to him.
But once you have embarked upon black magic it will dominate your destiny. It will hold you captive. Don't choose the quick and easy successes.
Do not allow yourself to be led away from your true path by earth-bound spirits which will rob you of creative power. To believe this theory one must suspend rational judge-ment, but are there not in any case fields of human experi-ence which it cannot explain? And does not this theory of Hitler being dominated by evil supernatural forces throw light for the first time on the reason for Auschwitz, Treblinka, the deaths of six million Jews, the plan to murder 33 million of the Slav population of Russia, the readiness to sacrifice three or four million of Germany's young man-hood in war and, finally, the long-term aim, reported by Fabian von Schlabendorff, for the total and permanent destruction of Christianity throughout the world?
In my Ordensburgen there will stand as a statue for wor-ship the figure of the magnificent, self-ordaining God--Man Perhaps we should content ourselves with the words of General von dem Bach-Zelewski, at the Nuremberg International Tribunal: In view of his tirelessly inquiring mind, it would not be very surprising if that were so.
During them many million people lost their lives, and scores of millions more had loved ones killed or were reduced to beggary. One of Satan's titles is Lord of Misrule. No circumstances could have better served his purpose.
