  • Setting
    Germany from 1907 to 1934
  • Overview
    The Education of Hitler takes Adi from boyhood to manhood in a bold, funny,
    provocative but grounded, historically-based investigation of the divisions in
    the gay community in Germany before the Second World War. A rent boy in
    Vienna, Adolf slickly leads us through a massive and rich period of history. A
    curtain is lifted on the world of the Brown Shirts to reveal glorious technicolor
    monstrosities and grave ironies. It reminds us that men who enjoyed fucking
    each other were also sending gay men to their deaths in the camps, and
    reveals the dark corners where all the secrets lie. How much of himself does
    Hitler have to sacrifice in order to retain power?
