Kolberg by Veit Harlan ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in German and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Re-creates the true story of a Prussian town's rebellion against Napoleon's army of occupation. Laced with National Socialist ideology, the film is a mirror of Nazi Germany's own war for survival during the final years of World War II. In its characterizations of Kolberg's besieged citizenry, the epic allegorically reflects the spirit of fanatical resolve to fight on, that Nazi propaganda was attempting to instill in the German populace. One of the Third Reich's most ambitious spectaculars, three years in the making"--Container

Der Ewige Jude The eternal jew : ein dokümentarischer Film by Fritz Hippler ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A visit to the Lodz ghetto in Nazi-occupied Poland, recorded by German cameramen with the naïve cooperation 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."-- Container
