In the final ghetto battle, one of the German soldiers fires a panzerfaust, which causes an explosion on the ground in front of resistance fighters. The panzerfaust used a shaped-charge, firing a stream of molten metal inside a tank, and had no high explosive or fragmentation variant. See more »
It is interesting to read fairy tails but not when they are presented as historical facts. I am the central director for the Hungarian Gendarmerie (Csendor) Veterans Organization and I am appalled by this film. The film's negative stereotype depiction of the csendors goes even beyond the distorted propaganda films of the communist era. The film shows a total disregard for the truth. If csendors were to have behaved as was shown in the film, they would not only have been discharged from the gendarmerie but would have been imprisoned. The depiction of the csendors in every respect is incorrect. It is clear that Mr.DeMercur has no knowledge of the functioning of the csendors yet he has the gall to write such tripe as Chosen. It is offensive and an insult to Hungary, Hungarians, and the historical truth.
