• Severe
  • Lots of scenes of Nazi murders and brutality against innocent people.
  • Although not a great deal of violence is portrayed, it remains difficult to watch because of its realism. Much of it is directed in such a way that it is not as intense as you may imagine. Many instances are depicted by long or medium shots, and together with the sequences being shot in black-and-white, the impact is somewhat reduced.
  • A one-armed man struggles to dig a hole. Two Nazis shoot him; blood is seen pooling on the ground.
  • A woman is shot through the back of the head, shown from a distance. A small bullet wound hole is shown, with blood briefly spurting and pouring on the ground.
  • A man is pulled away from the other Jews leaving their homes, and is shot in the back of the head; the top of his head explodes and tears apart, blood pools and spurts around him.
  • A man with an ill wife tries to tell a Nazi about her condition. Instead, she is shot in the head. Blood splatters on the man's face from the shot, and spurts from the wife's head while the man cries.
  • A group of people hiding in a bedroom are shot (including children), one by one. The shots are off-screen, as a German Nazi official plays a cheery tune on the piano.
  • A man wakes up and and nonchalantly executes Jews through a window with a sniper rifle.
  • When a man deems a worker to be unproductive, he marches him outside and attempts to execute him. However, despite trying two pistols, both mechanisms jam and he ends up beating the worker instead.
  • A pile of bloody bodies is seen outside a building.
  • A group of hospital patients are executed by Nazis with machine guns. The nurses give out cyanide to patients so they don't die from being shot.
  • A man intimidates a young woman; she cries, and then he beats her. He pushes a shelf of wine on top of her, but she is not killed.
  • A soldier shoots a little boy in the chest while two other soldiers hold the boy up. There is no blood: only feathers from his jacket.
  • Dead bodies are dug up to be burned. There is a heap of them already being incinerated.
  • A man is executed by hanging. The entire scene is shown in one shot.
