Trivia

A German Navy school ship called the "Herbert Norkus" was named in his honour but the outbreak of the second world war made this impossible to finish. There, too, have been schools, streets, and squares were also named after him during the Nazi period. See more »

Absolutely great movie!
23 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is a terrific movie! It's very emotional, it contains good acting and shows another side to the Nazis than we're used to. This movie shows an innocent young boy who grew up in an abusive household who later manages to stand up to his demons and do what he dreams of and finally be happy without anyone dragging him down or forcing him to be something he's not.

Definitely one of the better movies I've ever seen in my life, and even for a propaganda movie this one is just star quality! No matter if you're a neo-nationalsocialist, a communist, a democrat a republican or anarchist this movie is great and you'll without a doubt enjoy it.
