Judea Declares War on Germany is one of the famous antifascist films. This film presents a critical look at the WWII. It explains how the Jews at one moment in time declared war on the Germans. Having declared war, the Jews were captured and incarcerated in different prison camps. According to this film, this move led to a situation whereby the Jews were viewed in Germany as insurgents. Because of this, the Jews were detained in the concentration camps. Before the time of the Holocaust and Second World War, the movie explains that the Jews were ready to crush the Germans through propaganda. This was a move conceived by the supremacists in the Jewish community by releasing weekly movies (Judea Declares War on Germany). However, very soon the Germans retaliated thus leading to the Holocaust.
Another important thing about this film is that it presents a lot of controversy and propaganda which was used by many people to justify the senseless war and why many people sided with the adamant communists who went ahead to torture and murder their own people. This led to the death of the greatest number of people than those who died during the Second World War. For several years now, the film has been banned due to the fact that it shows very many things which are ‘believed’ to have taken place at the Nazi’s ‘Death Camps.’ It also portrayed how the Jewish community was ‘gassed’ by the Germans, and eventually how many Jews survived the chambers. Generally, many people have viewed this film as very controversial because it purposely presents a different picture of the Auschwitz from what really happened. As well, it is believed strongly that the events happening during the time must have played a huge role towards the Second World War which led to the deaths of very many people.
