After the German Revolution of 1918–1919 and the subsequent military surrender in World War I, the German Empire was replaced by the parliamentary Weimar Republic in 1918, and some of its territory partitioned in the Treaty of Versailles. Amidst the Great Depression and political turmoil, the Third Reich was established in 1933. The latter period was marked by fascism and World War II.
In Inglourious BasterdsEdit
The film takes place in the Third Reich, during the occupation of France.
Behind the scenesEdit
Although the film is mostly set in France, most of the scenes were filmed in Germany within the Babelsberg Studios in Potsdam, near Berlin. This studio, built in 1917, was also used to film Goebbels's propaganda films.
