The Jews of Poland (invaded by Germany in 1939) are depicted as filthy, evil, corrupt, and intent on world domination. Street scenes are shown prejudicially, along with clips from Jewish cinema of the day and photos of Jewish celebrities, while the narrator "explains" the Jewish problem. The climax and resolution of the film is Hitler's 1939 announcement that the Jewish race will meet its "annihilation" (Vernichtung).

Some historians have suggested that the scene from M
(1931) in this film was used to demonstrate that Peter Lorre

The film refers to rats as spreaders of leprosy, which is incorrect. Leprosy is transmitted by droplets exhaled from the nose, and the only known animal vectors are armadillos and primates. See more
The Jews are a people without farmers or workers: a race of parasites. Where the body of a nation shows a wound, they anchor themselves and feed on the decaying organism. They make business out of the sickness of the nations, and therefore endeavor to deepen and prolong all conditions of sickness. That's how it is in Poland, and how was in Germany. The Jews have been this way throughout their entire history. Their faces bear the age-old features of the perpetual sponger: the eternal Jew.
