The film also includes rare footage of Adolf Hitler before the outbreak of the Second World War. The special jubilee season of the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1934, marking the 300-year anniversary of the original vow to re-enact Jesus' Passion and Suffering every ten years thereafter, was the first performance after the Nazi regime's rise to power the year previous. Among other things, the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda ordered the official poster for the jubilee season amended to include the message "Deutschland ruft dich!" ("Germany is calling you!"), and the Kraft durch Freude scheme's discount-travel programme offered special cut-rate packages to the Passion Play, including rail fare, tickets and accommodations.
