Heinrich Himmler's three-and-a-half-hour-long "Posen Speech" to ninety-two SS generals in the Golden Hall of Posen Castle (Poland) on the occasion of the SS Group Leader's conference on the fourth of October, 1943 is "one of the most terrifying documents of German language". On the other, it is one of the most important documents of National-Socialism. Actor Manfred Zapatka reads the entire speech, employing the authentic text which was reconstructed from the original sound recording. The film was shot in one day, using four cameras in a studio.
