The Eternal Jew

The Eternal Jew is a 1940 propaganda film.

character of the "Wandering Jew" in medieval folklore.
At the insistence of Nazi Germany's Minister of Propaganda,
Joseph Goebbels, the film was directed by Fritz Hippler.
The screenplay is credited to Eberhard Taubert.
The film consists of feature and documentary footage combined with

roughly ten percent of the total population.
