An interesting look at racist ideology of the time period in question. If you want an idea as to why different minorities were at each other's throat, this film will give you an insight into the mindsets, even if the view is quite skewed.
09.08.2017 19:27A Lesson for us All,
Given the politics of the day, this film could provide us with a valuable lesson as to what we might expect if we don't stop worrying about political correctness and forcing people to accept others they don't want to accept. Heimkehr clearly shows what happens when you stop trying to show respect for others different from yourself and go to extremes in how you deal with them.
Quality issues, but still worth the purchase.

Not in the slightest unbiased or subtle anti-Polish propaganda. Highly recommended for anyone who doesn't understand just how bad propaganda against the Poles was prior to 1939.
22.10.2017 18:07Research on the film,
All existing post-war prints of this film most unfortunately have one scene missing, which takes place at the start of the film. The scene is described in contemporary film reviews. It is one where the German school teacher, played by Paula Wessely, is attacked by Poles, which is followed by the school being looted and burned. Keeping this missing scene in mind, the start of the existing film makes a lot more sense.
