Before The Fall (aka Napola)

Before The Fall tells three compelling stories at once; the first is of Friedrich, a young promising athlete given a chance to attend the Napola (National Political Institutes of Education.) The second is of Albrecht, a smart but physically lacking boy whose father dreams of being the ultimate Nazi warrior. The third and most fascinating is the Napola itself; a type of finishing school for teenage Hitler Youth on track to becoming officers of the SS. A great, smaller film that shows how the Nazi’s turned your every day normal person into the monsters of World War II.
