Product Description

By Nazi law anyone who was 25% Jewish was a Jew. Remarkably, many of these partial Jews, or "Mischlinge" (the German word for "mutt") were proud Germans, with roots that went back hundreds of years. Many were drafted into the Nazi army. This fascinating documentary examines the life of four men who faced this paradox. "Hitler's Jewish Soldiers" tells an engrossing story of madness and vicious absurdity; a study into the systematic mind of Hitler's personal chaos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitler's Jewish Soldiers DVD review November 4, 2009
Hitler's Jewish Soldiers tells the relatively unknown story of how some German men who were part-Jewish served in Hitler's army before the advent of World War Two and even during World War Two. In 1935 a German law went into effect that men who were partly Jewish ("mischling," which means "mutt" in German), could be drafted into the Nazi army that was out to destroy not only their Jewish relatives but the entire Jewish race as well. Although this is not the biggest story of the war ever told, German men who were partly Jewish did indeed serve in the German forces and thus, as director Larry Price states in his interview on this DVD, this documentary takes a "fresh look" at an aspect of World War Two that few people ever knew or even thought about.

The archival footage is very well laid out and we get the general history of how Germany would draft the "mischling" or boot them out of the army at their discretion. Some of the footage is a bit tough to take but most of it is not that graphic. In addition, the documentary focuses on the individual stories of five men who were all partly Jewish; and these men experienced harrowing, nightmarish days and nights for years at a time when they served as Hitler's soldiers. Their reward was survival; but sadly most if not all of their family members were killed in Hitler's concentration camps just like the majority of Jews were killed in that part of the world during World War Two.

I mentioned that the film focuses on the specific stories of five men in particular; and it does this very nicely. There is quite a bit of candid, recent interview footage of these five men which is invaluable since that age group is gradually dying off and not all of the men interviewed are still living today.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a film for Holocaust denial nuts. July 20, 2009
I cannot in good conscience let the Holocaust denial nut have the only review of this. This film in no way supports holocaust denial. In fact, it fully acknowledges the Holocaust, including the fact that of most of the Jewish relatives of the "Mischling", a derogatory term meaning "mutt" in German and applied to the Jewish German soldiers featured in the film, were murdered by the Nazis.

The film explores the myriad reasons why Jewish soldiers wound up in the German army. Many were drafted when the Nuremberg racial laws contained loopholes for Germans who were 1/4 or 1/8 Jewish. These loopholes were later plugged and kept more Jews from joining. Some lied about their ancestry and joined because it was safer to be a German soldier in combat on the front lines than to be a Jewish civilian in any area under German occupation. Most of these soldiers were just that-soldiers; few were Nazis.

The claim about 40% of the German Army's officers being Jewish is ludicrous. This film pegs the total number of 1/4 and 1/8 Jews at no more than 150,000, and considering the millions of men in German uniform that is a small number indeed. The film also points out that few of the "Mischling" were of high rank. Indeed, many turned down promotions for fear that their ancestry would be discovered. It was easier to be an anonymous Jewish private than officer.

The film is sobering in telling what happened to these soldiers' families. How were these soldiers rewarded for their service? By having their families murdered by the Nazis, the same fate intended for these soldiers once their services were no longer needed.

It is an interesting documentary, though, if you accept the historical fact of the Holocaust. If you are looking for something to confirm your Holocaust denial conspiracy theory, as the previous reviewer apparently is, you should look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Factotum January 4, 2010
Absurdity of pathologically anti-Semitic, paving Holocaust "civilised laws" of the Nazi Germany of the last century thirties is embedded from a notion of civic responsibilities Jewish-de facto-linked performed in the Hitler's Wermacht (a regular German army).

Interesting and not so frequently found historical testimonies are provided with DVD technical quality leaving a room for improvement as well as a jacket background depicting a star of David besides swastika, looks ambiguously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still watching, almost finished. VERY GOOD! August 27, 2008
By V S
Gee, kinda puts away that old, tired stereotype that ALL jews were herded up like cattle to be killed.

40% of the officers in the German Navy were jews, too. AND highly respected. There is a book on that but I cant remember the title.

Sadly, almost every book on Nazis/WW2/"Holocaust" published today are from "authors" that read 9 books on WW2 and write a tenth, or see 9 movies and make a tenth.

The research wasn't made from Soviet-captured microfiche, but it seems to be documented as good as it can be from not-too-difficult-to-obtain records and archives. 5* to balance out fake votes soon to come. Its a 4* book

How long will it be before this book is attacked for not following the norm? I wonder...
