Deutsches Land in Afrika


The rare Gaufilmstelle poster for the 1939 documentary film on the German colonies in Africa, with running time 67 minutes. One of the film's two directors was Johannes Haußler, who directed the 1933 film Blutendes Deutschland, which is also in this Collection.

The Collection also  has the 'Staatspolitische Filme'  booklet on this film.
