Herbert Norkus, born July 1916, was killed, stabbed six times, by German Communists on 24th January 1932, Berlin, as he delivered Nazi Propaganda leaflets. His martyred death became a role-model for the Hitler Youth, and too, exploited in the Nazi propaganda war machine. See more »
I saw this film in a university class about German cinema. I must say that as a student with a dual major in history and German this is a very interesting film. I believe that, as propaganda, it is outdated... no one in the western world would look at this film and say, "I think I'm going to go to war now" as a historical document or an example of propaganda of the time... it is wonderful! I would love a copy of this film, though i know i cannot find it anywhere. I would tell anyone who has the opportunity to see this film to do it ... but bear in mind that it is propaganda...and as such is naturally exaggerated to prove a point... Historians of the world... enjoy!
