Fascinating....
9 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am not going to give a numerical score to this film--it really isn't very easy considering that "Your Job in Germany" is pure propaganda--and very angry propaganda to boot. Now I am not saying that the film isn't true in many ways nor am I ignoring that the anger was more than justified--but the film isn't one you can easily rate or classify. It is, however, a fascinating look into the mind of the Allied cause at the end of the war in Europe.

The film was made to be shown to occupying troops in Germany. Much of it is a history lesson about German militarism beginning with the conquests of Kaiser Wilhelm I and Otto Von Bismark and moves to the present time. Interestingly, the film never really talks about the Holocaust, though it essentially brands the German people as evil. Considering the deaths of many millions at their hand, this view is certainly understandable though clearly not politically correct. It also admonishes soldiers NEVER to talk to the Germans or be friendly in any way towards them--just be professional and keep on guard for any indications that another war could be brewing. It's all quite paranoid and angry--but it is also a sign of the times--and an interesting piece of our history.

By the way, although it's not listed on IMDb, a companion film "Our job in Japan" is also available like this film from archive.org (whose films are frequently linked to IMDb). In this Japanese occupation film, the Japanese people are described more as dangerous but misguided and soldiers are encouraged to show the conquered people decency and friendship. Interesting, that's for sure.

Also, this film (and probably the Japanese one as well) was written by Theodore Geisel--that's Dr. Seuss to most folks.
