NAZI TITANIC is the amazing and mostly unknown story of
one of the most bizarre chapters of WWII. In the middle of the war, Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, decided to make a movie based on the sinking of the Titanic.

of the Arcona – the German liner used in the film to represent Titanic – just days before the end of WWII.
