An Original Vintage Theatrical German Movie Herald (measures 6" x 7 1/4" [15 x 18 cm]; 4 pages) (Learn More)

Jud Suss, the 1940 Veit Harlan German Nazi propaganda historical melodrama (based on the 1827 novella by Wilhelm Hauff; about a Jewish businessman in a German ghetto who is arrested because of his involvement with a teenage girl, and he is sentenced to hang) starring Ferdinand Marian (in the title role), Heinrich George, Hilde von Stolz, Werner Krauss, Eugen Klopfer, Kristina Soderbaum (the wife of director Veit Harlan, and she starred in most of his movies after they were married), and Malte Jager. Note that in the original source novella, and in the 1934 English version (based on the 1925 Lion Feuchtwanger book and starring Conrad Veidt), the Jewish businessman is sentenced to death under the anti-Jewish laws that existed in Germany in the 1700s. When the businessman discovers he is actually not Jewish by birth, he still allows himself to be executed, rather than turn his back on his people, and the entire movie is a denouncement of anti-Semitism. But Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels ordered this movie to be remade in Nazi Germany in 1940, and he drastically changed the plot, making the businessman a despicable rapist who is definitely Jewish, and the crowds viewing his execution cheer the extermination of this monster. The movie shows the tremendous power of film to influence audiences, and was an important part of the Nazi plan to get the German people to accept the extermination of the entire Jewish population of Germany and the surrounding countries. Note that this is a "conditional" movie. This refers to around 40 movies that were made in Germany between 1933 and 1945, during the time the Nazis were in power in Germany. These movies are considered to be propaganda movies, which glorify the Nazi regime and their ideals. Immediately after World War II, a list of over 100 movies that were made between 1933 and 1945 was created, and those movies were not allowed to be shown at any time in Germany or Austria. Over the next decade, around 60 of those movies were taken off the list so that they are allowed to be shown (but rarely are), and those movies are known as "forbidden movies", because even though they can now be shown, they could not be shown at all in the years right after World War II. The remaining 40 or so movies (including this one) are known as "conditional" movies, because they are still not allowed to be shown in Germany or Austria, even in the present day, with the sole exception being when they are shown in an educational context, like at a university, and a speaker talks before and after the movie. Note that director Veit Harlan was one of the most infamous of the Nazi film directors, directing Jud Suss and many other virulent anti-Jewish Nazi movies during World War II. After the war, almost ALL of his movies were banned, not just the anti-Jewish ones, and he was put on trial for war crimes. But in 1950, after several trials, he was set free, and in 1951, he resumed making movies, making a dozen of them until his passing in 1964.

Important Added Info: Note that this is an incredibly rare German herald from World War II or earlier. Virtually none of these heralds survive from any movie, surely because of Germany's massive paper shortages during World War II! Also note that this is a "country of origin" item for this German movie! Also note that this German herald measures 6" x 7 1/4" [15 x 18 cm].

Condition: good to very good.
