Movie The Victory of Faith (Der Sieg des Glaubens) (1933)

Der Sieg des Glaubens (English: The Victory of Faith, Victory of Faith, or Victory of the Faith) (1933) is the first propaganda film directed by Leni Riefenstahl. Her film recounts the Fifth Party Rally of the Nazi Party, which occurred in Nuremberg from 30 August to 3 September 1933. The film is of great historic interest because it shows Adolf Hitler and Ernst Röhm on close and intimate terms, before Röhm was shot on the orders of Hitler on the Night of the Long Knives in July 1934. All known copies of the film were destroyed on Hitler’s orders, and it was considered lost until a copy turned up in the 1990s in the United Kingdom.

    When I see the organization and discipline that went into a rally of this size,I always ask myself if something like this could be produced in the EU today. The answer is a resounding NO! Not that there wouldn’t be a crowd…it’s that the celebration of masculinity and commitment would never be allowed to be presented. One thing I know for sure: the women did not have to fear. Today, it’s not safe for women to walk in public. The film is a bittersweet reminded of all we’ve lost.
