German antisemitic Propaganda
Notes from NCJF documentation. This NCJF compilation demonstrates the overt use of film to denigrate Jews. All three excerpts emphasize exotic Jewish physical types and modes of dress.
1. A segment from "Dr. Frank's Journey Through Poland," a 1939 travelogue: footage of the Jewish district (Cracow); references to Cracow as a once great city now overwhelmed by Jewish types (2 minutes). VS, MSs, MCUs and CUs of city life, and 'ethnic' looking faces.
2. A 1940/41 German newsreel segment with staged sequences of Jewish storekeepers caught hoarding food and cheating local Poles (2.5 minutes).
3. Excerpts from the documentary "Feldzug in Polen" (a film about the invasion of Poland) in which Jews of Bromberg (Bydgoszcz) and elsewhere are depicted as indolent and as collaborators with the Polish people against the Germans (4.5 minutes).
