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

The scene at the end of M (1931) in which Peter Lorre, as a child murderer, is judged by a jury of other criminals was added to this film because Lorre is Jewish and Adolf Hitler felt that this "proved" the criminal mind of the Jew. See more »

Truly hateful Nazi propaganda.
2 November 2005 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"The Eternal Jew" is a sickening Nazi propaganda film made by Fritz Hippler at the insistence of Nazi Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels.The film consists of feature and documentary footage combined with new materials filmed shortly after the Nazi occupation of Poland,which then had a Jewish population of about 3 million.One of the opening shots of the film shows a pack of rats emerging from a sewer,juxtaposed with a crowd of Jews in a bustling Polish street.Close-ups of individuals show sickly,malformed facial features.The narration explains how just as rats are the vermin of the animal kingdom,Jews are the vermin of the human race and similarly spread disease and corruption.Toward the end of the film,after showing how Jews have been responsible for the decline of Western music,science,art and commerce,is a scene of a cow being slaughtered for meat by a shochet(Jewish ritual slaughter).This long scene,lasting several minutes,is pretty nasty and offensive."The Eternal Jew" is utterly vile Nazi propaganda filled with tons of lies.Still the film is well-made and it works as the historical warning.7 out of 10.
