Mein Kampf - Dokumentarfilm SWE/G (1960) 122 minutes

Post by Hans1906 » 08 Oct 2021 20:30

Probably the very first documentary film about the National Socialism, that we saw as young children in the 1960s/70s.

Den Blodiga tiden / Mein Kampf https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mein_Kamp ... entarfilm)

The film was still shown in schools as part of German lessons until the 1970/1980s; I remember a showing at our boarding school in the early 1970s.
Students under the age of 12 were excluded from the screening at that time.

Most of the scenes are familiar to us all today, but one should not forget the possibilities of that time, the late 1950s.

The speaker of the German version was the german actor Herr Paul Klinger, his voice is still in the back of my mind.

I too saw that in the 1970’s when I was young. It’s a good film…..horrible scenes of Warsaw ghetto misery. Erwin Leiser also made a great documentary on Nazi film propaganda, “Deutschland Ehrwache”

J. Duncan,

Thanks for your hint, from the story of Erwin Leiser you can also find the documentation "Eichmann und das 3. Reich"
from the year 1961.

Eichmann und das 3. Reich https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eichmann_und_das_3._Reich

Eichmann und das Dritte Reich (s/w) / Karriere, Verbrechen, Prozeß 1961


Probably broacasted in Germany around the year 1995 ?
Totally unknown to me until now, thank you very much.
