I agree that the figure of Hitler has become a caricature and it is important to explore how events come about. Governments are financed, wars are financed often with little regard for those who are suffering as long as there are financial returns. It is important to explore how Dictatorships are created and supported. They just don't arrive out of the blue... and often the hidden players are to be found in our own backyards. Just look at how the western countries supported Saddam Hussein's brutal actions until he turned against them. Or look at the funding of the Taliban (who always practiced a backward form of Islam, treating their women horrendously) against the Soviets. They were fully backed by the US until they refused to cooperate in building pipelines... Unfortunately, when there are profits to be made, morality is rarely considered. Let us not forget as well the US refusal to allow the hundreds of passengers of the St. Louis, fleeing from Nazi persecution to enter the country in 1938. (Requiring passengers to apply for visas through normal channels and "wait" their turn). If this film is able to communicate how dictatorships come about (also through the apathy of their citizens), how stereotypes are created and used for promoting hatred and ultimately financial profit, it may be a good thing.
