This "historytainment" TV series is about some of the most important people of Nazi Germany. Because Hitler sells, they included his name in the title, though he sometimes does not even have a connection to the men portrayed (e.g. Mengele).
The show focuses more on entertainment than on being factual and reasonable which it got some criticism for. By that, Prof. Guido Knopp, the man behind the series, managed to get history documentaries into German primetime at one of the country's biggest channels.
TGo those unfamiliar to what is shown, the show is somewhat informative, but also not accurate every time. Instead, the narrator delivers quite suggestive texts and they connect the documental narration to time witnesses who talk about their own life and experiences which are linked to the topic by the same events.
May also be problematic because of linking the crimes of Nazi Germany mostly to Hitler.
