Kolberg by Veit Harlan( Visual )

8 editions published between 1983 and 2019 in German and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mobilized Germany's most talented artists ... to re-create the true story of a Prussian town's rebellion against Napoleon's army of occupation. Laced with anti-Christian symbolism and National Socialist ideology, the film is a mirror of Hitler Germany's own war for survival. In its characterization of Kolberg's besieged citizenry, the epic allegorically reflects the spirit of fanatical resolve to fight on, that Nazi propaganda was attempting to instill in the German population during the final years of World War 2"--Container
Padenie Berlina( Visual )

7 editions published between 1985 and 2006 in English and Russian and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soviet cinema's definitive Stalinist recreation of World War 2 also serves as the crowning moment in Stalin's postwar deification. Stalin himself worked on the screenplay for this blockbuster epic, fine-tuning its portrayal of the dictator as father-hero to his people. No expense was spared in production. Heroic Joseph Stalin inspires the troops to defeat a cowering Hitler in this dramatization of the fall of Berlin in 1945. Presented to Stalin as a 70th-birthday gift but pulled from circulation in 1953, the film was made on Agfacolor stock removed from Germany by the Red Army

Der Ewige Jude : ein dokümentarischer Film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A visit to the Lodz ghetto in Nazi-occupied Poland, recorded by German cameramen with the naïve cooperation of the Jewish community, is combined with rare archival footage, clips from international newsreels and excerpts from related cultural films to portray the world's Jews as swindlers and parasites. This pseudo-logical, uncomfortably realistic and genuinely frightening documentary interprets Jewish life and history from the viewpoint of traditional European anti-Semitism and Nazi ideology."--Container
