Nazi Film on Polish Jews Opens in Vienna

December 12, 1940
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The German-produced film, “The Eternal Jew,” giving a Nazi version of Jewish life in Poland, has opened in Vienna, it was reported here to that the picture was “documentary proof that the Jews should be shut off from economic life because of their destructive ways, and also proof that a cultural void separates Aryans from members of the Jewish race.”

Taubert said the German Propaganda Ministry had projected the film even before the invasion of Poland, “but our efforts were continually sabotaged by the Polish Government,” and “our plans could be realized only after German troops had marched across Poland.”
