Synopses & Reviews
One of Adolf Hitler's most brutal exterminations came five years before the Holocaust. The SA was Hitler's army of thugs, but the head of the SA, Ernst Roehm, was threatening Hitler's rule. Hitler ordered the SA leadership to appear for a meeting at the Hotel Hanselbauer. 1000 of the leading SA, including Roehm, were slaughtered. It is the single most significant episode in Hitler's rise to absolute power, and the set the stage for World War and the Holocaust.
