10. Triumph Of The Will

This documentary film recorded the events and speeches of the Nazi Congress of Nuremberg in 1934. As with his book, Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler used this film to spread his ideas to the public.

The movie shows giant crowds of cheering people, parades, firework displays, and signs of power and abundance. Throughout the film, there are messages of hope for the future that Germany’s failed economy will recover under Hitler’s reign.

In Hitler’s speeches, he promises that there will no longer be a class system and that all obedient, brave Germans will be taken care of. They are told that they can create their own “perfect” German society as long as they stand together.

While many people take the footage as historic fact, scholars have argued that many of the scenes could have been fictitious. Much like reality TV shows, many scenes in the movie were rehearsed and reshot rather than recorded as events happened organically.
