How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Why does Claus von Stauffenberg come to the conclusion he can serve either the Fuhrer or his country—but not both? Why does he feel this act of treason against his government is really a demonstration of his patriotism? Do you agree with his decision? What would you do if you found yourself in a similar situation?

What methods did Hitler use to get and maintain control over the people? Why were his countrymen afraid to oppose him? Is there any other way to remove a dictator from office than with violence?
