IN THE NAME OF THE FUHRER

Belgium, 1979 (MIFF 1980, Programme 53)

Director: Lydia Chagoll

The focus of this film is on the Nazi attitude towards children, their own as well as those of Jewish birth. For their own it meant the calculation of belief in the Aryan myth and the intense hatred of all who were not German. For the Jewish children it meant a fate no different from that of the adults. The commentary consists of readings from found documents - Nazi edicts, directives, pedagogical manuals, war diaries and quotations.
