Thanks a lot! If it is original music for Feuertaufe I assume the composer is Norbert Schultze. Do you know if the melody has a name?


Yeah, it was by Norbert Schultze. I don't think it has a name, however.

Does the music from the 8:00 mark through the end (15:55) belong to the same soundtrack? All of it sound familiar.

The first part 8:38-10:28 is also used at around the 11:00 mark of the video "UFA-Tonwoche Nr.451_1939 - Hitlers 50. Geburtstag" (before the flyover of Luftwaffe aircraft,which was followed by Lockmarsch and Regimentsgruß). The second part 10:29-12:29 is also used in other Wochenschau (Nrs. 530, 596, 642, 722). The last part (12:30-15:55) is associated with the voice-over "...immer neue[r]..." (probably from the Wochenschau associated with the French campaign) in my head, so it must have been used elsewhere, but it's not from the 3. Übung segment of "Olympia - Das Fest der Schönheit (1936)" as I initially thought.

What is/are the name(s) of this/these?

Figured out 12:30-15:55 of above: it's from the opening minutes of Triumph des Willens. It also appeared in Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nrs. 512 and 548, as well as Balkanfeldzug. I'm calling it [an imaginary title removed by moderator, Ivan Ž.]

What's the background music in these two segments of Wochenschau?

Is there a name for this music that's always associated with field hospitals (Wochenschau Nr. 5xx, 572, 586, ???)

Is this some sort of anthem? It's also played during the 1940 Waffenstillstand vom Compiegne.

It is the "Präsentiermarsch" (German traditional inspection march, composed by Frederick William III of Prussia).

It can be also heard here as the opening tune :D

Good day! This one I've been stuck on for some years, and haven't found what it is, but does anyone know the piece starting from 21:31 to 22:10

I realize the music from 0m31s through 1m47s in Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nr. 736 (below) sounds like the same one from the 6m-7m mark of Triumph des Willens, but is it originally from Wagner's Meistersinger von Nürnberg?

Those are some variations on the melody of "Wach' auf, du deutsches Land" from "Der Sieg des Glaubens" movie, which can be indeed also heard in "Triumph des Willens" (Herbert Windt composed music for both movies).

From which Wochenschau is this footage from? Is there a name for the music in this video? I've found this same music in Wochenschau Nr. 568, 577, 583, 585, and Descheg Monatsschau Nr. 23.

Is there a name for this music from Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nr. 596? It also accompanied Doenitz's appearance in Nr. 620.


The above is followed by the following, which seems to be from a classical music or an opera piece. It is followed by Liszt's Hunnenschlact and Wager's Rienzi Overture.

This seems to be some sort of classical or opera piece used in Nr. 611. It also appears in Nr. 592. Can anyone attach a name to it?


Not sure what from Nr. 635 this is. Is there a name to it? It also appears in Nr. 647.
