- Accessed at US Holocaust Memorial Museum, courtesy of National Archives & Records Administration
Feature film about a young Russian army officer. Begins with his participation at a Russian youth military school and follows him as he advances in the army. Film portrays youthful patriotism through the willingness of young Russian men and women to enlist. The inhumanity of war is illustrated through scenes of extreme and ruthless German aggression. There are many any scenes of camaraderie between soldiers, battles with the Germans, and the destruction of war.
Reel 5: Scenes of smoke, fire and burning buildings with superimposed images of elderly women in despair to portray the atrocities of war. German soldiers raid a bunker filled with sleeping Russians and murder them all. Propaganda, German brutality.
