The last existing copy of Josef Goebbels’ anti-Jewish propaganda film, “Jew Suess,” was confiscated by the Political Court here, after it was condemned as “anti-constitutional and dangerous to public opinion.” Two Germans, Dieter Hegar, 38, and Helmut Schrag, 37, were fined and given prison sentences for their role in trying to sell the film.
