Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie's production company, Play/Action Pictures, has finished its latest project "The Meaning of Hitler." The film which lists Lurie as an executive producer, "traces Hitler’s movements, his rise to power and the scenes of his crimes."
The news of the film's completion comes just days after Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson shared a series of anti-Semitic posts on social media, including one that Jackson falsely attributed to Hitler.
"They have no place in our society and are not condoned or supported in any way by the organization. We are disappointed and we reiterated to DeSean the importance of not only apologizing, but also using his platform to take action to promote unity, equality, and respect. ... We are continuing to evaluate the circumstances and will take appropriate action." said the Eagles Organization in a statement.
The film is based on the award-winning 1978 book, "The Meaning of Hitler," by Raimund Pretzel, who wrote under the pseudonym Sebastien Haffner. The book won several international awards, including the Wingate Literary Prize.
