Sioux Falls Atheists endorse The Unknown Soldier for showing that the
regular German soldiers were just as guilty of war crimes as their
leaders. Lining civilian men, women and children up alongside
pits and machine gunning the lot is hardly legitimate warfare.

The crimes against humanity committed by the Nazi regime are often thought of as the work of the Waffen SS and Gestapo, under the direction of leaders like Himmler, Eichmann and, ultimately, Hitler. The "ordinary" German solider is usually seen as a noble pawn. Until now.

In this astonishing, searing and vitally important documentary, Michael Verhoeven, director of the Academy Award nominated film The Nasty Girl, unearths the long-buried truth - while simultaneously showing modern Germany in the throes of an identity crisis.

The Unknown Soldier documents Germany's controversial Wehrmacht Exhibition, which for the first time ever revealed the personal letters, photographs and film footage implicating the common foot soldier in horrific acts. While nationalist and far right groups lead street protests against it, saying the 'evidence' damning their fathers and grandfathers had been falsified, Verhoeven interviewed historians and experts, soldiers and eyewitnesses, and traveled to the killing fields of the Eastern Front. The result is both an invaluable document and a revealing look at an insecure nation, still reconciling its proud history with a unique and horrible wartime legacy.
