This Nazi propaganda film purports to show the story of a Nazi Storm Trooper named Horst Wessel--here called "Hans Westmar"--who took part in street brawls and assassinations in Berlin in the 1920s and 1930s against Communists and other opponents of the Nazis, and was killed by Communists not long before this film came out.

The song that is played by Hans Westmar's marching band is called "Herbei zum Kampf", which is based on the soviet tune "Aviamarch", written by Yuli Hait. The Nazi version was released a few years later. Earlier the tune was used by the German communists as "Rote Flieger". See more
