Storyline

This short, produced at the end of WWII, warns that although Adolf Hitler is dead, his ideas live on in the German people. The world must stay ever vigilant, so that Germany cannot make war against the world again. We must not be duped by Germany, as we were in the past, to believe that it is a peace-loving nation. The USA must also be on guard against those in America who sympathized with Germany and preach race hatred and violence in this country. The film uses dramatized footage interspersed with historical footage and newsreels. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Awful film about German attitudes in Late 1945
25 February 2004 | by (Alexandria, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This film won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short in 1945, and I believe it is the worst film ever nominated for an Oscar. This was a War Department film produced for our occupation troops in Germany, at a time when they were not allowed to even speak to a German. The premise is that there are still thousands (millions?) of Nazis out in the population, and we must keep them from letting another Hitler lead Germany. With a message like that for our troops, it's a wonder that the(West)Germans were our allies in the cold war. The film is available on videotape, under the title "Your Job in Germany", from International Historic Films in Chicago and is very rarely shown on Turner Classic Movies..
