Title:
Der Ewige Jude
Alternate titles:
Eternal Jew
Originally produced:
1940
Format:
DVD
Summary:
An anti-Semitic propaganda film. A visit to the Lodz ghetto in Nazi-occupied Poland, recorded by German cameramen with the naive co-operation of the Jewish community, is combined with rare archival footage, clips from international newsreels, and excerpts from related cultural films to portray the world's Jews as swindlers and parasites. This pseudo-logical, uncomfortably realistic and genuinely frightening documentary interprets Jewish life and history from the viewpoint of traditional European anti-Semitism and Nazi ideology. A candid, cinematically unique expression of racial hatred.
