Cheap and pointless
A rather uninteresting paint-by-numbers human interest documentary about a bunch of normal people and one neo-nazi. There’s some interesting bits about historical Hitlers and it’s fun to laugh at the crying nazi but that’s about it.
A study of the impact of a name
Meet the Hitlers is a very absorbing documentary about the consequences of having a particular name–in this instance, that of the notorious and murderous Adolphe Hitler. We follow the story of several families of that surname, one whose ancestors came over to America from Germany in 1799, and whose lives changed for the worse during WWII, the family of the only known living family of Adolphe Hitler, that of his nephew, who fought for the United States in WWII and afterward changed his name, another family of a dying father and his teenage daughter who seem to be no relation, a racist and his wife named Campbell who named two of their children Adolphe Hitler and Himmler Campbell and had them taken away from them by Child Protective Services for the state of New Jersey, and a German man who claims to be a nephew of the Nazi leader, but whom Hitler family scholars maintain is no blood relation. Then there is an artist who makes his living by doing photographic studies of all the strange Hitler items one can buy in America today. What I found most interesting was that Hitler’s actual nephew, who served under the family surname in WWII, thereafter changed it, and when a now elderly lady who went to the prom with one of his three sons was acquainted with the fact that her date had been Hitler’s grandnephew, and was asked if she would have gone with him if she had known that then, answered probably not. It is a very revealing study that answers Shakespeare’s age old question, “Would not that which we call a rose by any other name smell as sweet?” Here we find out.
