Hans Litten vs Adolf Hitler

Issue No. 2266

This documentary explores the failed attempt by Jewish lawyer Hans Litten to challenge the rise of Adolf Hitler through the courts in the 1930s.

He even cross-examined Hitler in court over his orchestration of Nazi violence.

The documentary features interviews with many of those who experienced the horrific rise of Hitler’s paramilitaries in Berlin at the time.
