It was the greatest German media scandal of the century: In 1983 the Stern magazine published the secret diaries of Adolf Hitler – which experts promptly declared to be a blatant fake. Lars Eidinger and Moritz Bleibtreu play the over-eager star reporter and the impish art forger in this six-part RTL+ Original miniseries about sensationalism and fake news. It's also the psychological profile of a society ever-eager for future success but still enthralled by its traumatic past - like the young Stern reporter Elisabeth who has to confront her own family's history.
