|Lead||Document Establishing the Babelsberg Film Academy|
General Bo Foster Estate. Acquired directly from the belongings of Adolph Hitler. Signed by Adolph Hitler and Joseph Goebbels. This is the most historic document we have ever handled. It in effect puts the Nazi war engine in motion. Historians could argue that this letter is one of the most important in the history of the Nazi Party. The document tells of the establishment of the German Film Academy at Babelsburg. This film academy helped the Nazi Party brainwash the populous. By doing so the Nazi's were able to rise to power and take total control of Europe. Without the formation of this academy, it could be argued that the Nazi war effort may have been in vain. The German Film Academy Babelsberg was the first state German training center for film artists. It was created to build the Nazi Propaganda Machine. The German Film Academy, established on the Babelsberg Ufa site, inaugurated on March 4, 1938 by the Reich Minister for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda , Joseph Goebbels , and gradually put into operation from November 1938, was intended to serve as a training facility for film directors, screenwriters, production managers, cameramen and film architects . The academy, which was directly subordinate to the film department of the Reich Ministry for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda , was primarily intended to replace the many film artists who had left the country after the National Socialist rise to power or had been banned from professions by the Reich Film Chamber . The former Hessen-Nassau Gau propaganda director Wilhelm Müller-Scheld became president, and the actor and director Wolfgang Liebeneiner became the director of the artistic faculty . Among the lecturers were among the Reich film director Fritz Hippler , head of production Ufa , Ernst Hugo Correll , the art director Erich Kettelhut , the multi-talented Veit Harlan and Willi Forst , the composer Peter Kreuder , the dramaturge Dr. Hermann Gressieker , the graphic artist Josef Fenneker and well-known actors such as Heinrich George, Paul Hörbiger and Viktor de Kowa . The training should last four semesters and end with the production of a feature film. In addition to the arts faculty, there were two other faculties for film technology and film industry / film law. The subject "Weltanschauung" should also be taught. Applicants who wanted to enroll as students or guest auditors had to prove their "Aryan descent" and membership of the NSDAP . As a prestige project, the German Film Academy was initially provided with considerable funds and was thus able to purchase a select selection of foreign films as teaching material. As part of the urban redevelopment of Potsdam-Babelsberg into a "film city" promoted by the National Socialists, the German Film Academy was also to receive a monumental new building in the National Socialist representational style (architects Emil Fahrenkamp and Otto Kohtz ). Due to the war, however, the facility was soon too expensive, so that it was closed in the spring of 1940 by Joseph Goebbels "for the duration of the war". The planning of the construction project continued until 1943 and then stopped, in 1944 the German Film Academy was dissolved.
