Background: Jud Süß was one of a trio of anti-Semitic films released early in the war. It got the full support of the entire propaganda system. Here, for example, is a full page ad for the film taken from the Nazi Luftwaffe magazine. The ad claims that 8,000,000 people have seen the film, which was released in late September 1940.
The source: Der Adler,26 November 1940, p. 624.
