Did you know that Hugo Boss designed the uniforms for the SS and the Hitler Youth? That was just one of the facts that I learned by watching Apocalypse: The Rise of Hitler, which charts Hitler’s life from his birth on 20 April 1889 to his suicide on 30 April 1945.
Apocalypse: The Rise of Hitler, like Hitler’s Hidden City, which featured in my A Year In The Life Of Berlin post, is an excellent documentary from National Geographic.
