East German born Thomas Kretschmann, who portrays former Third Reich Rocket Scientist & Nazi Wernher von Braun, stated he feels an aversion to taking Nazi roles in film. As of 2019, he has appeared fifteen times as a Nazi including a starring role as one of the leaders and architects of the Jewish Final Solution, Adolf Eichmann. He also portrayed Nazi Hermann Fegelein in the film Downfall (2004). Scores of videos were made with completely new subtitles inserted for various, mostly comedic, topics. Fegelein is the object of Adolf Hitler's anger and rants. See more »
