Revenge of the Scythe..
The Nazis produced many films to promote their views, using the party's Department of Film for organizing film propaganda.. An estimated 45 million people attended film screenings put on by the NSDAP..Reichsamtsleiter Neumann declared that the goal of the Department of Film was not directly political in nature, but was rather to influence the culture, education, and entertainment of the general population..On 22 September 1933, a Department of Film was incorporated into the Chamber of Culture...

Reichsparteitag 1935 in Nürnberg..

Sometimes the government selected the actors for a film, financed the production partially or totally, and granted tax breaks to the producers.. Awards for "valuable" films would decrease taxes, thus encouraging self-censorship among movie makers..Under Goebbels and Hitler, the German film industry became entirely nationalised.. The National Socialist Propaganda Directorate, which Goebbels oversaw, had at its disposal nearly all film agencies in Germany by 1936..Schools were also provided with motion picture projectors because film was regarded as particularly appropriate for propagandizing children..Films specifically created for schools were termed "military education"..Initially, the aim of Nazi foreign policy was to create an Anglo-German alliance, so before 1938, Nazi propaganda tended to glorify British institutions, and above all the British Empire.. Even regarding it, along with France, as "decadent democracies", Goebbels set out to court them..A particular theme of praise was offered for British “ruthlessness” in building and defending their empire, which was held as a model for the Germans to follow..Perhaps more importantly for gauging the Nazi regime's pro-British feelings in its early years was the prominence given to Englandkunde (English studies) within German schools and the lavish praise offered to British organizations as a model within the Hitler Yooth..

House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Haus Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha) is a German dynasty, the line of the Saxon House of Wettin that ruled the Ernestine duchies including the duchy of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha..Founded by Ernest Anton, the sixth duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, it is the royal house of several European monarchies, and branches currently reign in Belgium through the descendants of Leopold I, and in the UK and the other Commonwealth realms through the descendants of Prince Albert..Due to anti-German sentiment in the UK during World War I, George V changed the name of his branch from Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to Windsor in 1917.. The same happened in 1920 in Belgium, where it was changed to "van België" (Dutch) or "de Belgique" (French)..In Coburg on 23 December 1832, Ernest married his niece Duchess Marie of Württemberg, the daughter of his sister Antoinette.. They had no children.. This marriage made Marie both Prince Albert's cousin and his stepmother..Ernest had 3 illegitimate children..Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld (Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld) was one of the Saxon Duchies held by the Ernestine line of the Wettin Dynasty..

The House of Wettin is a dynasty of German counts, dukes, prince-electors and kings that once ruled territories of present-day German states of Saxony and Thuringia for 953 years.. The royal house is one of the oldest of Europe.. Its origins can be traced back to the town of Wettin, Saxony-Anhalt.. The Wettins gradually rose to power within the Holy Roman Empire.. Members of the royal family became the monarchs of several medieval states, starting with Saxon Eastern March in 1030.. Other states they gained were Meissen in 1089, Thuringia in 1263 and Saxony in 1423..The family divided into 2 ruling branches in 1485 by Treaty of Leipzig: the Ernestine and Albertine branches.. The older Ernestine branch played a key role during the Protestant Reformation.. Many ruling monarchs outside Germany were later tied to its cadet branch Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The Albertine branch, while less prominent, ruled the most of Saxony and played a part in Polish history..Theodoric I (c. 916 – c. 976), German Dietrich I, also known as Thierry I of Liesgau, is considered the oldest traceable member of the House of Wettin..He had 2 sons..The Saxon duchy began fragmenting in the 15th Century as a result of the old German succession law that divided inheritances among all sons..Count Bernhard of Anhalt, youngest son of Albert "the Bear" (1106–70), inherited parts of the old Saxon duchy, primarily around Lauenburg and Wittenberg, in 1180.. He had 2 sons, Albert and Henry..A study of the List of members of the House of Wettin will reveal much of the different strands of the ducal house and their possessions... have witchcraft in your lips, Kate..This was a merry message..We hope to make the sender blush at it..I pray thee take my former answer back..Bid them achieve me than sell my bones!..
