Inhalt

NS propaganda film set before a background of the fantastic mythos surrounding Horst Wessel, member of the SA in the late 1920′s. The fraternity brothers and SA member Hans Westmar are to campaign for the Nazis in the Berlin working district, Friedrichshain.

Though the Communist Party has many supporters in this quarter, Westmar can strengthen the presence of the NSDAP. The Communists resolve to assassinate their political opponents. Westman is shot on his doorstep, and taken through Berlin to his grave in a funeral procession.
