But is it really public domain? if not, the link shouldn't appear in the main article. --Tcheh (talk) 14:39, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Well, the only thing I thought of after reading this article is WOW. I mean, this article is fabulous. This review has very little to talk about, as the article is near-perfect for GA and requires nothing extra in terms of prose, grammar and verification.

There are only two problems that I can see in this article, and one of them is significant. The first, the article is on a touch and controversial subject related to Nazi propaganda, and hence I am surprised to see the article so well-intact. While I am not German and hence not familiar to in-depth Nazi history, I am well aware of the effect of Hitler's name on Jews even today. Hence, the issue of neutrality automatically comes. While we may not be able to do much, the article seems to have a slight bend towards excessive anti-Nazi feelings. While such feelings are justified in life, Wikipedia is strictly neutral. Hence, this is a problem.

The second is regarding images. I don't understand why all the images are at the right. It is giving the article a weird look, and the presence of the first photo just below the infobox is disconcerting. I suggest you do this:-

  • For the cast members, apply a multiple image template. For example, I suggest this:-

You can continue for others. However, DO NOT use the Soderbaum image as it has a copyright tag, and hence is strictly ineligible for a GA article.

  • Delete the image regarding the execution of Oppenheimer. It's not necessary.
  • Apply alternating image distribution upon all the photos except the cast ones, which you should put in the multiple image template.

In view of such minor changes, I am putting this article on hold for a week. I hope you can quickly fix the matters up. Looking forward to welcoming a new GA into WP:Film. Cheers! AnkitBhattTalk to me!!LifEnjoy 13:39, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Well done for such prompt changes. i made a few minor corrections. In view of all this, I think I will pass this article. Congratulations! Keep up the great work, and hope to see you succeed in many other efforts for GA-promotion. AnkitBhattTalk to me!!LifEnjoy 16:47, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Response: Thank you for taking the time to review the article and thank you for the good words of praise and encouragement. --Pseudo-Richard (talk) 16:49, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Citation formats for multiple pages from the same source[edit]

It seems that there are two different ways of citing multiple pages in Wikipedia. The "ibid", "op. cit.", "loc cit." convention seems to be discouraged. Until recently, I have usually created a separate citation for each page or set of pages using the "page" or "pages" parameters of the {{cite}} template. However, I recently discovered the {{rp}} template which allows there to be only one citation for each source with the different page numbers provided in-line. This article currently uses both approaches and I would like to pick a single approach and make it consistent for all citations but I wanted to ask for suggestions on which one is preferred. --Pseudo-Richard (talk) 17:14, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Lida Baarova[edit]

In article is missing that actress Lida Baarova helped arrange meeting Goebles and Harlan. She told in czech newspaper Lidove Noviny. "Ten film byl opravdu strašný, ale tehdy jsem si tu hrůzu neuvědomila." Zdroj: in Czech. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:35, 5 January 2014 (UTC)


According to the article, the pronunciation of the German title of the film is [juːd sys]. However, I believe this is inaccurate. Word-final "d" in German is pronounced [t] due to terminal devoicing, and initial "s" is pronounced [z]. The correct pronunciation should therefore be [juːt zys].
