Nazi Film Showing At Carpenter Center

Short Takes

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A 1945 Nazi film commissioned by Nazi Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels will get its first-ever American showing at Harvard's Carpenter Center tonight at 8 p.m.

"Kolberg," a surrealistic film directed by Veit Harlan, was intended to give a "shot in the arm" to low German morale, said Senior Lecturer on Social Studies Richard M. Hunt, an expert on the film and culture of Nazi Germany.

The title "Kolberg" refers to a German town that had resisted Napoleon's attack. The filmmakers used the example of the town to try to inspire Germany--then suffering demoralizing losses in World War II--to stand firm against Allied forces.

Hunt, who teaches Literature and Arts C-45, "Culture and Society in Weimar and Nazi Germany," will deliver remarks at the film showing.
