“The scary message about this movie is that when people say it would never happen to us, it can. It starts with minor things like excluding people for small so called minor Infractions. This progressively builds to the most important of things that has us questioning again, how did it happen? Before you know it occurred, things are getting out of hand and then an escalation that happens which is beyond anything that any of the participants would have been able to imagine at the start of the project.

Three quarters of a century later we still ask ourselves , how did Hitler happen? If you ever have, this movie is a good starting point into starting your journey of knowledge.” read more

" A class room experiment goes horribly wrong. I really enjoyed the film but I think many people might miss the minor social conditioning exercises that happen early in the film. This could be any class room in any country. Organizational unity with empty messages and standing for nothing beyond 'we stand together' is a dangerous trend seen in many different places."
