Nazi America: A Secret History
Summary: "NAZI AMERICA: A SECRET HISTORY illuminates the imperfection of American freedoms. From the early years of Nazism when many German-Americans sympathetic to Hitler's doctrine were accused of creating a Trojan Horse in the U.S., to today's violent and fractured neo-Nazi groups, this documentary shows how American Nazis have used the very system in which, if given power, they would destroy.

"By garnering unprecedented access to the Aryan Nation compound of Northern Idaho and its leader Pastor Richard Butler, as well as interviews with William Pierce, author of The Turner Diaries, the producers have given the world a rare view inside today's most notorious neo-Nazis. Dramatically presented, but always grounded in the stark reality of the topic, NAZI AMERICA: A SECRET HISTORY shines a balanced light on a world that lurks within the freedoms of democracy, posing a threat to us all."--2000 Peabody Awards entry form.
