The Curse of the Swastika (1940) Roy de Groot, Bob Danvers Walker

The Curse of the Swastika (1940)
The Curse of the Swastika, a classic British Pathé documentary from 1940, illustrates the insidious rise of the Nazi Party from its post World War One origins through Adolf Hitler’s conniving to become both the leader of the party and eventual dictator of his self-styled Third Reich.

The twisted logic of scapegoating of the Jews, the development of the dreaded Nazi concentration camps, the construction of the Siegfried Line and the dynamic tensions and botched compromises of European inter-war politics that led to the annexation of Austria and the Sudetenland before the eventual declaration of war with the invasion of Poland are all explored. The Battle of the River Plate in December 1939, the preparedness of French troops for the Battle for France and the sinking of the Graf Spee by Admiral Harwood and the British Navy feature heavily in this call to arms giving us a unique slant on the reasons for the start of the Second World War and the Curse of the Swastika.
