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>

Propaganda Tells Us About the Propagandists
25 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As has been noted, this is unmitigated propaganda. As with all good propaganda, there are elements of truth sprinkled throughout.

Fact is, there is a part of the German character that (not unlike "patriotic" Americans) believes in racial or societal or cultural superiority.

Totally unaware of the irony, this film attributes to Germans many of the same threats to society that 1930s Nazi propaganda assigned to Jews, gypsies, and gays. This film was made a decade before Brown v. Board of Education, two decades before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, more than half a century before 9/11.

"Others" are to blame, you know. They always are.
