Nat’s latest project involves a lot of hard work and the topic isn’t an easy one. I thought it might be a good idea to give you some hints and tips for reading and watching – surly this list isn’t complete by far, it is a mere start. Maybe some of you would like to prepare a bit for the upcoming three-part TV documentary.

Albert Speer was one of the leading Nazis that remain a riddle and an object of debates up until today – especially when it comes to that ever burning question of how much he knew about the Shoah, about what his role with in regime really was and how responsibility was defined in Germany in the early years after WWII and the way modern Germany is looking at his confessions and his denials today. Nat’s decision to play Speer is an extremely brave one.

I sincerely hope that this project that deals with the trial at Nuremberg will prove to be another valuable part of remembrance that is so badly needed for everyone. Yes one might argue that this way of recollection is a virtual one, but what else is there left for us to do than keeping the truth alive with modern means and telling the story over and over again so we won’t forget.
