About the Show

From 1929 to 1939, Edgar Feuchtwanger lived across the street from Adolf Hitler in a bourgeois building in Munic, Germany. From his bedroom, the young Jewish boy had a view of the F├╝hrer across the avenue on the second floor. A schoolboy in Munich at the time, Edgar witnessed the rise of Nazism firsthand, sharing in the fear and dread felt by all German Jews witnessing the unstoppable ascent of a madman. Edgar finally left Poland in 1939 at the age of 16, just two months before the invasion of Poland and the declaration of War on France and Great Britain. Now at the age of 87, Edgar shares his remarkable story for the first time in this fascinating documentary. Returning to Munich to retrace the childhood he left behind, Edgar chronicles his pre-war experience in the provincial town that housed one of the most merciless and cruel men in history.
