WWII - The German experience Anonymous 12/14/2020 (Mon) 03:05:57 No.989
Discussion of films/TVs about WWII from the German perspective. Allies movies with comical over-the-top natsee villains not welcome.

Surprising, a lot of Russian films have a sympathetic German character.
>>990 Meanwhile German WWII films tend to have "Russia bad" characters. Kinda funny. I'll check that out, thanks.
I found this kino documentary. Probably due to its content, there is no info or publicity on it except an article on Times of Israel. It's on YouTube but unlisted: Ost Front (Andrey Osipov, 2017) https://youtu.be/JkD7QQjCviE https://www.timesofisrael.com/nazis-with-puppies-russian-wwii-film-shows-war-through-sympathetic-german-lens/ >In the new Russian World War II documentary “Ost Front” (“Eastern Front”) Nazis are painted with their own very human brush. Stitched together almost entirely from official WWII Nazi propaganda footage, audiences are treated to scenes of Nazis skating peacefully on a frozen river, reading letters from home and passing around photos of their babies. In one segment, as their tanks advance into Soviet territory, the soldiers frolic with a black puppy that came along for the ride. >Director Andrey Osipov scoured Russian archives, watching over 167 hours of German footage to cherry pick never-before-seen moments like these from the German campaign in the Soviet Union. Osipov told The Times of Israel that he wanted to get an emotional response from the audience, to bring the WWII era alive, and to raise the question of how a civilized nation could lead its army to murder millions. >"Because most filmmakers don’t have the patience or the money, the same WWII footage gets reused from one film to the next,” said Osipov. “I worked a lot in the archive, and when I watched this stuff, I realized that there are a lot of things that no one saw before. These films also show our territory, our war – even though it was recorded from the other side.” In short, the documentary shows the human side of nazis and void of their atrocities. At the end they were hanged due to war crimes, the way it is edited can evoke sympathy from viewers. There is no speech in the film. As the article says, they used to make a voice over commentary but it was too edgy for the audience, who walked out of the screening. The film is great as itself but I'm interested in what the filmmakers have to narrate too. Watch and judge for yourself.
>>991 In what films is this notable? Great Patriotic War films have their share of being Hollywood-tier while Germans always make theirs neutral and about the clean Wehrmacht. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7tEIYveBPQ
>>990 well, the NSDAP were liberators, not conquerors despite the lies we’ve been told by marxists. most russians on the eastern front welcomed the germans because they experienced decades of oppression at the hands of jewish bolsheviks; the same bolsheviks that raped and murdered the russian monarchy in 1910 and then installed communism. https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/history/2189-many-russians-hoped-that-hitler-would-free-them-from-stalin
>>992 >nazis this term is inaccurate and was created by a jewish man with the sole purpose of slandering the NSDAP >war crimes german leaders were tortured into giving false confessions and according to the procedural rules of the nuremburg trials, there was literally a rule (i forget which one exactly but it should not be too hard to find) that stated that “no evidence is required” for those precedings. you should be able to find it here: https://holocaustdeprogrammingcourse.com/ with a source included. those trials were literally kangaroo courts and the germans unironically did nothing wrong
Cross of Iron (1977) is alright, except for the annoyance that amerimutts are cast as Germans. Is there any blackwashing in this? For some reason a kike decided to write it.
You can witness pieces of the German WWII experience firsthand through Eva Braun's personal 8mm film reels, hosted by the National Archives. The reels contain some genuine moments of beauty with families vacationing at a mountain lake for example. It's interesting to see how real people lived in the past, and I can't think of an earlier collection of home movies of this quality. The historical/political aspect is not my primary focus, but the occasional presence of the Nazi inner circle keeps the viewing experience from getting too dull. https://catalog.archives.gov/id/43461 Comprehensive scene breakdown http://www.thirdreichruins.com/eva_movies.htm
