    What is this documentary called in English? I dont understand german unfortunately, and it's clear it's been dubbed over from english; so there may be an english version around.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
