Top 10 Nazi Propaganda Films

5. The Great Love

Made in 1942, The Great Love was the story of a German army lieutenant named Paul who falls in love with a famous singer named Hanna. When Paul has to return to war, Hanna sings a soul-crushing love ballad, “Ich Weiss es Wird Einmal ein Wunder Geschehen,” a song of being separated from the love of your life. It quickly became an internationally famous song.

While it may seem like a love story, The Great Love was considered Nazi propaganda because its goal was to show German women that sacrifices must be made for the good of the Third Reich.

The Great Love was the highest-grossing film in the history of Nazi Germany. It was eventually removed from the banned movie list as part of an effort to denazify films. It became available for public release in 1963 after editing out the Nazi symbols.
