Trivia

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 »

Stoppel: What's your name then?
Heini Völker: Heini.
Stoppel: Are you a member?
Heini Völker: What's a member?
Stoppel: So you're not a member, then, correct?
Heini Völker: No, I'm not a member.
Stoppel: Well its high time you become a member then. We have a Communist Youth Internationale. You're not a Nazi, are you?
Vater Völker: What are you talking about, Stoeppel? The boy doesn't know a thing about that stuff. My boy a Nazi, now that is totally ridiculous. I'd kill my boy if I ever thought he was a Nazi... Whatever.
Stoppel: It was nice talking to you, Heini.

Story about courage and self-sacrifice
26 June 2008 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie. Although its propagandistic intentions are obvious, it can be enjoyed. After all, its not about the NSDAP ideology, it's mostly about bravery and self-sacrifice. Replace Hitlerjugend with American Boy Scouts and most people would agree, what a good and moral film it is.

Rob from England pointed out, that from today's point of view, the Communists in the film with their "beer, food and sex" would seem far more better deal today. Probably so. But that only shows, how the world has declined since the cultural revolution of the late 60-s. Values like moral purity, patriotism and courage must be held high by all. They are the essence of survival for any nation, whatever ideology they may have.

I also think German government should have considerably more trust in their citizens and should lift the ban off of films like this, so they could become available on DVD, and not only in P2P networks, as it is today.
