Trivia

A German Navy school ship called the "Herbert Norkus" was named in his honour but the outbreak of the second world war made this impossible to finish. There, too, have been schools, streets, and squares were also named after him during the Nazi period. See more »

Vater Völker: What are you talking about, Stoeppel? The boy doesn't know a thing about that stuff. My boy a Nazi, now that is totally ridiculous. I'd kill my boy if I ever thought he was a Nazi... Whatever.

Story about courage and self-sacrifice
26 June 2008 | by fredk-4See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie. Although its propagandistic intentions are obvious, it can be enjoyed. After all, its not about the NSDAP ideology, it's mostly about bravery and self-sacrifice. Replace Hitlerjugend with American Boy Scouts and most people would agree, what a good and moral film it is.

Rob from England pointed out, that from today's point of view, the Communists in the film with their "beer, food and sex" would seem far more better deal today. Probably so. But that only shows, how the world has declined since the cultural revolution of the late 60-s. Values like moral purity, patriotism and courage must be held high by all. They are the essence of survival for any nation, whatever ideology they may have.

I also think German government should have considerably more trust in their citizens and should lift the ban off of films like this, so they could become available on DVD, and not only in P2P networks, as it is today.
