"[D]eftly explore[s] . . . a reunified Germany's redefinitions of itself and its engagement with the past through the transporting power of moving pictures. . . . [W]ill be of great utility to scholars." FILM & HISTORY
"This book is suited not only for scholars of media and film but also for lay people with an interest in the National Socialist past and its portrayal in film. Therefore it is entirely imaginable that this study would not only be acquired by university libraries but also by public libraries. . . . Bangert's focused and detailed analysis leads him to an extremely precise presentation of his findings that extends throughout the work. . . . In sum, it may be said that this publication represents a successful attempt to do justice, in 214 pages, to the complexity of the topic . . . . The author's findings could . . . find a reception in media and film studies circles." MEDIENWISSENSCHAFT
"The breadth of the spectrum [of recent cinematic treatments of the Nazi period] makes it exciting to follow the very different formal solutions of the filmmakers . . . . The analyses are very concrete and comprehensible; the sympathies of the author lie above all with 'small,' subjective, mostly documentary films." HHPRINZLER.DE
