Salò, o, Le 120 giornate di Sodoma = Salò, the 120 days of Sodom by Pier Paolo Pasolini( visu )
2 editions published in 2008 in Italian and held by 251 libraries worldwide
In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial

Secrets of the dead ( visu )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 221 libraries worldwide
Captured German officers were taken to British country mansions where they were lured into a sense of comfort so they would speak freely. British agents had thoroughly bugged the homes and grounds to record conversations, which were translated in many cases by Jewish refugees from Germany who had joined the British army. The tens of thousands of pages of transcripts, recently rediscovered, helped save British lives by providing vital intelligence about blitzkrieg raiding patterns and the development of the V-2 rocket. They also showed differences of opinions in the officers' ranks about the worth of Hitler and his Nazi party and offered the first reports of the Nazi atrocities. This program combines archival footage from the war, translated dialogue, interviews, and superbly acted and emotionally charged reenactments. The descriptions of war crimes and images of concentration camp violence make this program appropriate for mature viewers, who likely will be enthralled by the content
