Antisemitic propaganda
18 April 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is one of Nazi Germany's most vicious antisemitic films. It was released in 1940, the most antisemitic year movie-wise throughout the entire Nazi era with Veit Harlan's Jud Süss and Fritz Hippler's and Joseph Goebbels' Der ewige Jude being released later the same year. Die Rothschilds is not nearly as notorious as the other two films but still the antisemitic message is crystal clear. In the final episode the protagonist, Nathan Rothschild, draws lines on an imaginary map of Europe from London to Vienna to Napoli to Frankfurt to Jerusalem to mark cities under Jewish control having thereby drawn the Star of David. As in Jud Süss the film concludes with a written text intended for the German audience of 1940. The text explains that the descendants of the Rothschild family are now on the run away from Europe as refugees (thanks to National Socialism) but that the struggle against Britain continues. Today we know that the Holocaust was initiated in 1941.
