Jud Suess

Post by Einsamer_Wolf » 24 May 2003 22:51

I saw the movie Jud Suess several years ago. Evidentally it is based on a true story. I would wager that Goebbels embellished tings a bit, or perhaps omitted significant facts. To what extent then is this notorious propaganda film fact, and to what extent is it ficiton.

Einsamer Wolf -

The controversial Nazi production of Jud Süß, made in 1940, was loosely based on the 1925 book by the Jewish author Lion Feuchtwanger. It was not the first film to be based on the book - in 1934 a British version was made. You can find out more here:

Here is one of the many unofficial posters for the Nazi production:

Thanks--but my understandng is the fictional novel is based on a true story? Or am I mistaken?

Tiger SO4: Where can I get a copy of this film? I'm not surprised I didn't see it available at Amazon.

The English version should be readily available, I'm surprised that you can't find it at Amazon. I checked myself, and was equally surprised.

With regard to Veit Harlan's production, I know I have found a link elsewhere and slightly less "dodgy", but this might be a good bet. They've got other Nazi-era stuff too.
