The current flag of Germany.

Germany (German: Deutschland), currently and officially the Federal Republic of Germany (German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland), is a federal parliamentary republic in Western Europe.

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 Basterds[]

The film takes place in the Third Reich, near the end of WWII, during the occupation of France. Hitler is seen in his Bavarian lair in Chapter Two, when flashbacks with Hugo Stiglitz' deeds in Germany and his incarceration are also shown, which also appear in Chapter Four for a brief clip.

Characters born in Germany[]

Behind the scenes[]

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.
