In Nazi Germany in the 1930's, a secret plan was hatched to create a so called Aryan Master Race of blond haired, blue eyed children. While millions of genetic undesirables were eliminated this elite was being bred to populate the new German reich. This project was called Lebensborn - the brainchild of SS chief Heinrich Himmler. He said: Should we succeed in establishing this Nordic race and from this seed bed produce a race of 200 million then the world will belong to us. The SS would be the sexual engine behind this world takeover bid. An eager Himmler ordered his men to mate, both in and out of wedlock, and claimed jubilantly "my men tell me with shining eyes that they have just had an illegitimate child." But he was frustrated by the time it took. To swell the numbers in the Lebensborn, the Nazis went on to kidnap 200000 Polish children for "Germanisation". 65 years after World War 2 ended this film reveals what became of some of those who were born and stolen to become the new master race. Guntram Weber reveals how he discovered he was the secret godson of Himmler. Folker Heinecketells how he was raised a German but discovered he was stolen from Poland. And Gisela Heidenreich tells how she grew up with a mother who helped Lebensborn create the Master Race.

Passion is in actuality Peter Gabriel's soundtrack to the Martin Scorsese film The Last Temptation of Christ, retitled as a result of legal barriers; regardless of its name, however, there's no mistaking the record's stirring power. Like much of Gabriel's solo work, the album is a product of his continuing fascination with world music, which he employs here to create an exceptionally beautiful and atmospheric tapestry of sound perfectly evocative of the film's resonant spiritual drama; inspired by field recordings collected in areas as diverse as Turkey, Senegal, and Egypt, Passion achieves a cumulative effect clearly Middle Eastern in origin, yet its brilliant fusion of ancient and modern musics ultimately transcends both geography and time. Remarkably dramatic, even visual, it is not only Gabriel's best film work but deserving of serious consideration as his finest music of any kind; equally worthwhile is Passion – Sources, which assembles the original native recordings which served as his creative launching pad.
