Ignore all the American patriotism and exceptionalism, this old 20-minute American Army propaganda film called ‘Don’t be a sucker’ expresses some relevant anti-MAGA ideas. Easy to substitute working class when it says America.
Three Minutes–A Lengthening: Nazi barbarism in Poland

If there is a spate of films about Nazism and the Holocaust at present, it is not simply that artists and others remain determined to bring out the truth about one of the most terrible episodes in human history, worthy as that effort may be.
The new films are clearly a response as well—fully conscious or not—to the rise and threat of the far right in Germany, the US and elsewhere.

To what extent they dig deeply enough into the traumatic phenomena, despite their undoubted sincerity and artistic seriousness, remains an issue.
