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

Some historians have suggested that the scene from M 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.

Perhaps the most effective propaganda movie ever made.
Looking away from the content, and seen strictly as a movie whose purpose is propaganda and instilling hatred and dislike of jews, this movie did it's job very well.
If you see this movie as a document of the general atmosphere at that time (60 years ago, already dislike of jews in NS-Germany, lower educational level among the public in general, etc.) you can easily imagine how effective it was.
As an illustration of the atmosphere in prewar, nazi-Germany for the historically interested, this movie is a good document.
