Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Hans Westmar: [in a former tavern which is now an international club which is playing international music and is serving international food] I cannot stay here. I cannot. But one thing you should know: This here, this is not Germany. Believe me, Maud, Germany is not that.

Excellent Period Scenes
22 June 2019 | by Troy-TempestSee all my reviews

Yes, this is a massaged adaptation of Horst Wessel's story. Having said that, this has loads of period footage of streetscapes, SA marches and very good representations of the street battles between the KDP and NSDAP. The transfer of this remastered version is very watchable and the subtitles are very accurate. Without getting into an argument over politics, if you have an interest in this era you will enjoy this dvd
