In Volume 4, No. 6, The March of Time producers released their first single-subject issue, a journalistic exposition of the Nazi reign in 1938 Germany, with newsreel cuts of Adolf Hitler, the Fuehrer; propaganda minister Paul Joseph Goebbles; and Fritz Kuhn, the President of the German-American Bund. The M-o-T cameras poked behind the air of prosperity in Berlin to reveal the persecution of the Jews; the manufacturing of military equipment, and the build-up of the goose-stepping army. It also shifts to New England where the opposition to Fritz Kuhn's American-German Bund is shown. William E. Dodd, the retiring American ambassador to Germany is seen and heard delivering a Nazi-criticism speech. Written by
