Education For Death - The Making Of The Nazi (1943) Walt Disney

[Narrator]
Hans is now ready for the higher education,
as decreed by the Fuhrer.

Marching and heiling, heiling and marching, Hans grows up.

In him is planted no seed of laughter, hope, tolerance, or mercy. For him only heiling and marching, marching and heiling, as the years grind on.

Manhood finds him still heiling and marching, but the grim years of regimentation have done their work.

Now he's a good Nazi.

He sees no more than the Party wants him to.

He says nothing but what the Party wants him to say.

And he does nothing but what the Party wants him to do.

And so he marches on with his millions of comrades, trampling on the rights of others. For now, his education is complete:

His education for death.



Education for Death: The Making of the Nazi was released when Disney was under government contract to produce 32 animated shorts from 1941 to 1945.
In 1940, Walt Disney spent four times his budget on the feature film Fantasia (1940) which suffered from low box office turnout. Nearing bankruptcy and with half of his employees on strike, Walt Disney was forced to look for a solution to bring money into the studio. The studio's close proximity to the military aircraft manufacturer, Lockheed, helped foster a U.S. government contract for 32 short propaganda films at $4,500 each. This saved the company from bankruptcy and allowed them to keep their employees on payroll. -- Education for Death
