    Third Reich in Color brings subjects from National Socialist festivals, Hitler’s inner circle, Goebbels’ children at play, day-to-day life of the German soldiers, clips from most major campaigns and more.

    In this compilation of amateur color movies from within the Third Reich, we are presented with a unique perspective from ground level. In addition to scenes from battlefields, we see folk events of the pre-war years, and Germans at play and leisure.

    Even an important event such as a military demonstration in Berlin for the benefit of Mussolini is seen as you or I would have glimpsed it, from the third or fourth row, thus adding to the sense of reality.

    Other footage was taken by soldiers at the front, during the Russian campaign, the Western front in 1940 and elsewhere. Seeing these things in color makes everything appear more immediate and contemporary. You see an ordinary, generally good natured people doing ordinary things against the background of the organizing principle of the Nazi movement: the swastika is everywhere, the uniforms, the marches, the rallies.

    English commentary.
