1965: “Obyknovennyy fashizm” (Ordinary Fascism, released in the US as “Triumph over Violence” or “Echo of the Jackboot”), USSR, documentary, directed by Mikhail Romm, produced by Mosfilm, 138 min

An extraordinarily powerful reminder to the future generations of the horrors of German Nazism, it features archive footage to denounce dictatorship. The film was released in 1965, in the Soviet Union's heyday at the height of the great societal and intellectual "thaw" that followed the Stalin's death and the denunciation of Stalin's totalitarianism by Nikita Khrushchev.
