Storyline

The Jews of Poland (invaded by Germany in 1939) are depicted as filthy, evil, corrupt, and intent on world domination. Street scenes are shown prejudicially, along with clips from Jewish cinema of the day and photos of Jewish celebrities, while the narrator "explains" the Jewish problem. The climax and resolution of the film is Hitler's 1939 announcement that the Jewish race will meet its "annihilation" (Vernichtung). Written by Jamie McCarthy <jamie@mccarthy.org>

Trivia

Some historians have suggested that the scene from M (1931) in this film was used to demonstrate that Peter Lorre's "child murderer" was being portrayed as a sympathetic character and was an example that the Jews were twisting the reality of good and evil and therefore perverting German society.

Goofs

This film states that Charlie Chaplin was a Jew. In reality, he was raised Anglican and later professed to be Agnostic. When asked if he was Jewish, he reportedly said, "I do not have such an honor". See more »

Quotes

Adolf Hitler: If the international finance - Jewry inside and outside Europe - should succeed in plunging the nations into a world war yet again, then the outcome will not be the victory of Jewry, but rather the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!

An interesting view into nazi-propaganda
2 February 2002 | by (Aarhus, Denmark) – See all my reviews

People might argue that this movie is full of lies, and thus have no value because its untruthfulness. I find the film very interesting because it is a opportunity for us to learn how things not always is how they seem to be. We must have in mind that the common people of that time didn't have the same horizon as people have now a day. Therefore it was easier to convince them.

I see the film as a reminder to not always trust what we are told.
