Classic German film from 1940. Of course labeled as propaganda by our enemies.
Informative and sound to us.
Anti-semitism is not really about hate. It is about being aware and staying alive.
(Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live, (1934), p. 64). (last quote some pages later):
“I cannot emphasize the matter too strongly. Anti-Semitism is not, as Jews have tried to make the world believe, an active prejudice. It is a deeply hidden instinct with which every man is born.»
“He remains unconscious of it, as of all other instincts of self preservation, until something happens to awaken it. Just as when something flies in the direction of your eyes, the eyelids close instantly and of their own accord.
“So swiftly and surely is the instinct of anti-Semitism awakened in a man…
… there is not a single instance when the Jews have not fully deserved the bitter fruits of the fury of their persecutors.”

What Roth was talking about:
«The best of the gentiles: kill him; the best of snakes: smash its skull; the best of women: is filled with witchcraft.»
Kiddushin 66c The uncensored version of this text appears in Tractate Soferim (New York, M. Higer, 1937), 15:7, p. 282. «The best of the gentiles should all be killed» (http://talmudical.blogspot.com).
