German film breaks Hitler taboo

"It is not the first time that they have shown Adolf Hitler on the screen, but it is certainly the first time that they have tried to discover the human touch in that monster,"-Dr Rolf Giesen, from the Film Museum in Berlin
It is unfortunate though certainly understandable that German Cinema had yet to portray a humanistic Hitler. It's important for people to understand that Hitler was a human monster. Evil can come from the most mundane of people. There was nothing super-natural about Hitler and his followers. They were disturbingly average.
