Behind the Scenes
of the Nuremberg Rally Movie
Triumph of the Will (German: Triumph des Willens)
Here is a stunning book by Leni Riefenstahl, the world-famous German photographer and filmmaker
who filmed the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. Riefenstahl is one of the greatest film makers of all time.
It's a documentary book about making the film "Triumph of the Will". It chronicles the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in
Nuremberg. The film contains excerpts from speeches given by various Nazi leaders at the Congress, including
portions of speeches by Adolf Hitler, interspersed with footage of massed party members. Hitler commissioned the
film and served as an unofficial executive producer; his name appears in the opening titles.
Triumph of the Will was released in 1935 and rapidly became one of the best-known examples of propaganda in
film history. Riefenstahl's techniques, such as moving cameras, the use of telephoto lenses to create a distorted
perspective, aerial photography, and revolutionary approach to the use of music and cinematography, have
earned Triumph recognition as one of the greatest films in history.
Riefenstahl won several awards, not only in Germany but also in the United States, France, Sweden, and other
countries. The film was popular in the Third Reich and elsewhere, and has continued to infiuence movies,
documentaries, and commercials to this day.
Needless to say, that this is the rarest among all Riefenstahl books.
