Considered to be one of the cruelest dictators, Adolf Hitler completely over-turned the political scenario of Germany after coming to power in 1933. The reason for the outburst of World War 2 and perpetuator of ultimate crime against humanity in his treatment of Jews, Hitler did it all. The Nazis inflicted the direst cruelty upon the Jews during the Holocaust and the supreme policing of the German state with the help of Gestapo. This led to terrific limitation of human rights. Though many of us have heard about all this, the holocaust documentaries give a much more vivid understanding of what actually happened. Seeing something in the form of motion pictures is always a better option than just reading about it in books, novels or even newspapers.

So, here is a list of Holocaust documentaries involving the Nazi Regime and its cruelty.

#1 The Short life of Anne Frank

Anne Frank, a victim of Hitler’s cruel Anti-Jewish laws and prisoner of concentration camp, has been widely written off. Sadly she did not survive but she still continues to live among us in the form of memories and literature, her diary. The Short Life of Anne Frank is one of the best holocaust documentaries. The Dutch documentary released in 2001 and was loved by the audience. This Holocaust documentary covers everything about her life along with the wars going during that time and the pitiful condition of the Jews.
