Director Statement

I'd just finished reading John Toland's autobiography of Adolf Hitler, and was visiting Munich. I decided to locate and see for myself what sort of a place Hitler used to live in and hang out in when he was an impoverished nobody. I was actually surprised to see how completely all traces of him have been covered up and how unwilling anyone is to point out any location connected to the man. I wasn't sure if this quest was an anticlimax or the best possible thing I could find, and decided to make a musical narrative about it at The Metronome, my Song Blog at YouTube.
