Diary of a Nazi consists of three separate Soviet documentary shorts, bundled together in feature-length form for American distribution. The first entry is "District No. 14", a study of the Nazi occupation of Poland. Next is "The Blue Cliff", a dramatization of a Czech woman's rescue from the Germans by the Russians. The last is "The Signal", a patriotic paean to civilian resistance. The English-language title of this compilation is derived from the notion that all three short stories were based on the notes found in the diary of a slain S.S. officer (if this is true, the officer had a surprisingly sympathetic viewpoint!)
