One of the things I came across when researching propaganda films is this short film from World War Two, made by the Dutch government in exile and the Canadian film board. It is in English, its target audience being North Americans. Like much propaganda, in hindsight is strikes one as naive, almost simplistic. The stereotypical images of pre-war Holland will certainly bring a smile to your face. The few seconds depicting the bombing of Rotterdam in 1940 were images I had never seen before.
