dated November 21, 1953: W. Germany Bans Hitler Film

The West German Government in Bonn banned on the 20th cinema hall and TV showings of a film of Nazi Supremo Adolf Hitler's life, "Till Five Past Twelve". Dr. Gerhard Schroeder, Minister of Interior, decided to prohibit showings of the film, for the reason that it "glamourised National Socialism." The Minister explained, "The film's accompanying text cannot blot out this impression, and the film threatens to disturb peace among our people and to cause damage to the Federal Republic of Germany."
