Top 10 Nazi Propaganda Films

4. The Rothschilds

Made in 1940, this movie tells the story of how the Rothschild family made their fortune in the 1800s. They steal money and then lie to manipulate the stock market to make even more. At one point in the movie, one of the Rothschilds says, “We can make a lot of money but only if there is a lot of blood.”

They eventually become millionaires by benefiting from the misfortune of others. This movie is very loosely “based on a true story,” only it paints the family in the most negative light possible.

The movie ends with the Rothschilds sending members of their family to various major cities in Europe, with the Star of David representing the points on a map. A common theme in anti-Jewish Nazi films was the fearmongering that Jews were using their financial success as a way to take over all of Europe.
