“Deadly Conspiracy”: The continuation of the ZDF two-part series reconstructs the events in 1933 and 1934 that helped Hitler to gain absolute power.

In the years 1930 to 1934 Germany’s political face changed radically. The two-part documentary “How did Hitler come to power?” Reconstructs the change from the first German republic to the coordinated leader state. The first part “The Devil’s Pact” was already on view in mid-January and describes the path leading up to Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor in 1933. Today at 8:15 p.m. ZDF is now showing the second part “Deadly Conspiracy”. Both films are also in the ZDF Mediathek available and part of the educational offer “Terra X plus school”.

Following the events up to 1933, the film is devoted to the following year and a half, during which Hitler had his opponents and rivals eliminated, and thus achieved unlimited power within a very short time. However, “Deadly Conspiracy” also shows that the rise of the Nazis was by no means inevitable. It is rather that it was only a sum of fatal errors and decisions that made totalitarianism possible.

The two-part series is based on the BBC series “Rise of the Nazis”, which the ZDF extensively reworked for the German version. In the new version, the focus is now on the actions of the key characters; the filmmaker Julian Jones has reconstructed crucial moments in scenes. In addition, a German or British expert will now comment on the key figures. General Kurt von Schleicher is represented by the German historian Dr. Stephan Malinowski interprets, Adolf Hitler through the British history professor Sir Richard Evans, SA chief Ernst Röhm through the historian Dr. Heike Görtemaker. First, the protagonists tell the processes from their perspective and then fit into an overall picture.
