The philosophies of Nazism and the manner in which the youth of Germany was moulded to a militaristic order are forcefully brought to the screen in Hitler’s Children [from the novel Education for Death by Gregor Ziemer].

Tim Holt essays the leading role of the German boy who grows up to become a Gestapo officer, but cannot grow away from the childhood love he had for a girl who suffers the tortures of the Nazis.

Holt gives an excellent performance and looks the part he plays. Opposite him, Bonita Granville likewise acquits herself very creditably. An outstanding job is done by H.B. Warner as a bishop, whose church service is broken up by Gestapo agents on the hunt for Granville, who has taken shelter there. The dialog given Warner proves very trenchant.
