Episode Summary

The Architect: Albert Speer
He sculpted Nazi ideology in stone and cement. He turned art into propaganda. And he recruited an entire nation to forge weapons for the Führer: Albert Speer - the technocrat among Hitler's henchmen. From early on Hitler knew how to manipulate this young architect's organizational talents and creativity for his own schemes. As a result, he was instrumental in paving the way for Speer's extraordinary career. The passion they shared for monumental buildings was the basis for a close, personal relationship. At the end of the Nazi regime Speer remarked that he had been Hitler's only friend. Speer gave his all for the Führer. But was Speer only an impartial virtuoso, the artist who kept the wheels of destruction in motion without willingly serving a mad man's ideology?moreless
