Morgenrot is a 1933 German submarine film set during World War I.

Released three days after Adolf Hitler became Reichskanzler, it was the first film to have its screening in Nazi Germany. It became a symbol of the new times touted by the Nazi regime. [1]

The title (literally "morning-red") is the German term for the reddish coloring of the east sky about a half hour before the sunrise. Dawn was the U.S. title.

It was filmed in Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, the first German submarine movie made after World War I.


The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures awarded it with Best Foreign Film for 1933.
