Quotes

Marinus van der Lubbe: How many more times have I got to say it? Yes I did set fire to the Reichstag. I've said it hundreds of times. This has been going on for eight months now, this torture. I've no strength left, I can't stand it. Yes I did set fire to the Reichstag. I did it myself. Now sentence me and leave me in peace.

Meant to stir the populace against Hitler and his Nazi Party.
15 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

One might wonder why that would have been necessary? Why would such an obvious evil need to be enlarged upon? Its important to remember that earlier on Hitler had much sympathy and support in the U.S. Ranging from a great many organizations of German immigrants, the "Bunds", to elected government officials like Sen. Joseph Kennedy, it took a long time for the U.S. to see Hitler for what he truly was. And that took a certain amount of what I'll call "shock therapy" by the U.S. press and movie industry. This, although it was produced in Britain, is a good example of that therapy. Its well done and hits, for that day and time, a needed mark. A very young Herbert Lom, who was born in Prague, makes a striking appearance as a Hitler Youth. This, one of his earliest roles, must have been a bitter sweet one for him. Well done and well put together, this remains worth watching. Lest we forget. Which is why history tends to repeat itself. We forget.
