Hitler on Trial

When: Sat., Aug. 15, 2 p.m. 2015

Meet Hans Litten, the brilliant young lawyer who dares to cross-examine Adolf Hitler in a Berlin courtroom in 1931. Litten’s goal: to expose Hitler’s true character and murderous plans, and halt the rapid rise of the Nazi Party. His reward: the red-hot hatred and fatal revenge of a hostile witness. Hitler on Trial sweeps you into this little-known, true story of collision between the future Führer’s blatant contempt for the law, and Litten’s brave but futile attempt to save German democracy. A gripping, intense BBC drama guaranteed to make your heart race, starring Ed Stoppard (Upstairs Downstairs, The Musketeers), Ian Hart (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Finding Neverland), Sarah Smart (Wallander, Death in Paradise) and Anton Lesser (Wolf Hall, Game of Thrones). o Press: “the courtroom scenes, drawn from actual transcripts, crackle until the intimate, unashamedly play-like atmosphere comes into its own.” –Herald Scotland “the drama was taut and laced with foreboding….the lead performances were superb´-The Telegraph
