Nazis Exhibit War Pictures Showing Maltreatment of Jews

Revolting scenes showing how advanced German troops are executing hundreds of Jews in the Russo-German war zone are contained in a Nazi film which the Ministry of Propaganda exhibited this week in Berlin to a group of foreign correspondents, it was reported in the Times today.

The film, dealing with the “effects of modern weapons on human beings and animals”, shows corpses stacked up in heaps. The advance of German military units mark the launching of a hunt for Jews, while houses are still in flames. Jews are shown in the film being driven from their homes, herded together and marched off. Even the prisons in occupied areas are searched by Germen troops to establish whether any Jews are among the prisoners.

The film titles boast that the “Jews have been overtaken by fate at last” and allege that “many of them are responsible for the German-Russian war.” “England is now their last refuge”, one title reads.
