These contributors add considerably to the knowledge about the structure and organizations of the Third Reich newsreel empire, newsreel production history, and, most important, a consideration of newsreel reception.
Newsreels also of themselves provide a valuable historical source for understanding the period in which they were produced and shown, in this case the war, and in particular the relationship between propaganda and public opinion. 647-54, Oct 2005 "Nazi newsreels in Europe, 1939-1945: the many faces of Ufa's foreign weekly newsreel ( Auslandstonwoche ) versus German's weekly newsreel ( Deutsche Wochenschau)."

Most historians involved with Third Reich film have concerned themselves with propaganda, which is not unexpected, in view of their interest in the state and the fact that Third Reich film (of all varieties)-either overtly or covertly in numerous ways-promoted the interests of the state.
