Sonja, a model student, becomes a celebrity when she wins an essay contest. She is invited to compete in a national contest and she chooses the topic "My hometown during the Third Reich"--Which according to lore didn't collaborate with the Nazis. However, the local archives produces contradictory evidence and she is denied access to local newspaper files. She discovers many secrets -- secrets the town wants left that way -- and quickly becomes the object of scorn and threats from the townspeople who have a surprising lot to conceal.

The Wehrmacht-Exhibition, which was shown in eleven major cities in Germany between 1999 and 2004 and was visited by more than 500,000 attendants, challenged ordinary Germans to rethink what their fathers and grandfathers did during the war. Whereas most had been led to believe that the cold-blooded murder of civilians had been a crime of a minority of officers, for the first time Germans saw photos and footage of ordinary soldiers gleefully tormenting and executing civilians on the Eastern front. The nation was shaken, and large protests were organized by those who believed the evidence was manufactured. In The Unknown Soldier, director Michael Verhoeven (The Nasty Girl) interviews historians and experts, including those who allege or deny the crimes, and filmed in the killing fields of Ukraine and White Russia

The expropriation of assets from German Jews, during the Third Reich, benefitted virtually every German citizen. It was not only the Gestapo who invaded Jewish residences in order to confiscate all property, from bank accounts to the last shirt, it was the German tax officials. A competition evolved between bureaucrats as to how to organize the robbery of the Jews before they were expelled, or sent to their deaths. Larger assets went to the tax offices, and the smaller assets and goods were sold to friends and neighbors in public auctions of "non-Aryan" property. Many of the documents proving this expropriation were lost or destroyed; the ones that remained were hidden away. Using first-hand accounts, award-winning filmmaker Michael Verhoeven goes on a search to unearth evidence documenting one of the greatest robberies in human history"--Container

The expropriation of the German Jews benefitted virtually every other German citizen. It was not the Gestapo who invaded Jewish residences in order to confiscate all assets, it was the German tax officials. A bizarre competition evolved between bureaucrats as to how one should organize the robbery of the Jews before they were expelled or sent to the gas chambers. Larger assets went to the tax offices, and the smaller assets and goods were sold to friends and neighbors in public auctions of "non-aryan" property. Many of the documents proving this expropriation were lost or destroyed; the ones that remained were hidden away
