The movie Der ewige Jude ( ” The Eternal Jew ” ) is the most famous Nazi propaganda film. It was produced at the insistence of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels.
The movie disses the Jews of Poland as corrupt, filthy, lazy, ugly, and perverse: they are denounced as alien people who would have taken over the world through their control of banking and commerce, yet which still would live like animals.
The exhibition which has been organized by the Nazis in 1937, was of virulent Anti Jewish content and was held in Munich ( November 8, 1937, and ended on January 31 1938 ), Wien ( August 2 through October 23, ) and Berlin ( November 12, 1938 through January 31, 1939 ).
