This Nazi propaganda film purports to show the story of a Nazi Storm Trooper named Horst Wessel--here called "Hans Westmar"--who took part in street brawls and assassinations in Berlin in the 1920s and 1930s against Communists and other opponents of the Nazis, and was killed by Communists not long before this film came out.

Did You Know?
Based on the life of SA storm trouper Horst Wessel, who was killed by members of the Communist party in 1930. Propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels didn't allow to use the name of the actual person, because Wessel would have been portrayed in the christian and procurer milieu. Wessel's mother Margarete Wessel tried to avoid the premiere of this movie and even wrote Hitler personally that he should ban it because it would make defilement of her son. See more
