Kolberg by Veit Harlan( Visual )
4 editions published between 1944 and 1986 in German and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Re-creates the true story of a Prussian town's rebellion against Napoleon's army of the 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
