The children of the Hitler Youth are wearing the armbands of adult members of the Nazi Party and not the Hitler Youth. The swastika would not be in a white disc surrounded by red but in a white square surrounded by red. This scene was when one of the prisoners was found and was dragged out of a hiding place with the children all running to see. See more »
I saw this movie for the first time at the tender age of 10; at the time I obsessed over the concept of WW2 and the reasons behind it. Even at 10, I understood the impact that this movie must have had on so many people around the world. The movie was actually banned in Germany because of its terrifying portrayal of the Nazis and their regime. With its controversial content, one might wonder why the movie was even made to begin with. As an adult, I appreciate this movie so much more than I did when I was young, mostly for its honesty and its hopeful message.
Even though the movie contains a lot of violence and graphic depictions (at least from a 1940's perspective), I think the movie is fine for children to watch. In fact, the events in the movie are quite accurate; therefore, the movie might be a nice history lesson.
Watch and you'll see! The seventh cross will hold a place in your heart for years to come.
