A number of sentences from the narration of this movie were sampled in the 1987 single "Don't Argue" by Cabaret Voltaire. See more »


Narrator: Don't let it fool you. You are in enemy country. Be alert. Suspicious of everyone. Take no chances.
Narrator: The German lust for conquest is not dead. It's merely gone undercover.
Narrator: Guard particularly against this group. These are the most dangerous: German youth.
Narrator: They were brought up on straight propaganda.
Narrator: Don't argue with them. Don't try to change their point of view.

Nazis were your ordinary Germany people.
31 October 2004 | by (Long Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

This film, and "Dr Suess", while not meaning it, may come closer to an explanation of the Holocaust, than anything available to the public.

First, I've read how "racist" this short (clasified as documentary) is, against the German people. The film is branded as American Propaganda. This all may be so. But the message is fascinating...

We must remember that the Nazis were Germans!. The Nazi party could not have come to, and stayed in power, and committed such atrocities, without the cooperation...and zeal, of the German people.

This film attempts to explain that there is a "monster" beneath the German person. It tells of the authoritarian and nationalistic, and aggressive nature, of these fun-loving people, and that American GI's should be aware of a dark side of this people, and not trust, or fraternize, with them.

While this film, made specifically for the soldier, may seem dated, heavy handed, hard-nosed, angry, and pure propaganda designed to protect the American GI------it does touch on something that I have wondered about for a long long time...

How could the Holocaust have happened, and how could a country, and a people, commit such acts?

To blame it away on a leader, and a political party, does a disservice, to the millions who died.
