Trivia

There was a rumor that the Youth Leader of the German Reich and writer of the lyrics of the anthem of the Hilter Youth, Baldur von Schirach, had homosexual penchants and relationships to Hitler Youths, especially to Jürgen Ohlsen. There are no 100% prove but the stories were spread so wide, that the verb "to quex" (in German: quexen) was used a synonym for homosexual activity. See more »

of undeniable historic interest

In this film, communists are displayed as drunkards, only trying to win fascists over to there side through sex and not through arguments. Instead, the stupid non-arguments of the Nazis (their hair-raising twaddle about "Deutschland") are left without comment. However, today we see similar traits from the side of the lefties, who, as anti-fascists, physically attack the poor morons of today's Nazi-dome (all from working-class), instead of entering into debate with them. And, unfortunately, even today the connection to the booze is something that many lefties cannot swear themselves free from. In Sweden we called a lot of the lefties "red-wine-lefties" on account of this and these people, unlike real lefties, could never be trusted. The five stars are for the historic account of this film, which is not entirely without merit. The lefties have never seriously asked themselves why they failed against the Nazis before it was too late. One answer is for sure that the Nazis had much more money behind them (just see the beautiful uniforms, in a kid's eye, that all those young Nazis got, which, by the way, is most revealingly displayed in this film - another reason for giving it stars). Without the help of the establishment, among which there were probably even Jews, Hitler would hardly have risen to power. Still, however, the communists failed and seem to fail again at least among some of the working class today. Communist have not taken a decisive step against power (becoming anarchists) even today and are therefore not convincing enough against growing fascism. This film is worth seeing for at least touching upon why the lefties are failing amongst those, who should otherwise have everything to win if things changed and power amongst human beings was annihilated.
