In Europe, there is a saying that Germans will never forgive the Jews for what they, the Germans, did to them. Had Germany won the war and Viet Harlan retained his respectability as one of Germany's greatest filmmaker's during that period, it is highly doubtful that Thomas Harlan would have turned out the way he did, just as it is doubtful that a peculiar national phenomenon like the Red Army Faction – a group of morbidly ethno-masochistic ‘rock star’ terrorists who hated their fathers' generation for being Nazis and thus rebelled via mostly directionless and meangingless murder and mayhem – would have ever been spawned, as such individuals are undoubtedly akin to symbolic spiritual syphilis of a defeated nation with a severly suicidal collective unconscious. Despite the physical and emotional torment he faced at the hands of the innately manipulative, manic, and malicious Thomas Harlan via Wundkanal, Dr. Filbert would apparently go on to state that his “experience with the movies had been the greatest moment of his life,” which is an outcome that the director was surely not hoping for, thereupon making the ex-Nazi seem like a more rational, warmhearted, and reasonable person than the perturbed person who shamelessly tried to ‘expose’ him under dubious conditions of contempt. Although Dr. Filbert spent 18 years in prison for his alleged war crimes before being released due to poor health and working on Wundkanal shortly thereafter, his conscious was certainly more clear than Thomas Harlan; a man whose own family members concluded he wasted his whole life dwelling on his overwhelming malice for his father as depicted in the documentary Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Süss (2008) directed by Felix Moeller. Of course, I guess it should not be that big of a surprise Thomas Harlan led the loser life he did as he was one of the few personal friends of the infamously crazy actor Klaus Kinski; a German national of Polish descent who was ambivalent towards his homeland after making the conscious decision to desert his soldierly duties in the German Wehrmacht, whereupon he was subsequently caught, court-martialed, and sentenced to death, but eventually escaped and intentionally had himself captured by the British and remained a POW for the rest of the Second World War. It is often said that the Jews were the greatest victims of World War II, but one only has to watch Wundkanal and countless other German films to see that it was probably the Fatherland's sons that have suffered the most, especially in regard to the soul. After all, I cannot remember the last time I saw a film directed by a Jewish filmmaker depicting the slaughter of millions of white Russian Christians by Jewish bolshevik hangmen, nor an Israeli auteur directing a work about the liquidation of Palestinian children by IDF men.
