The screenplay was written by the director Veit Harlan. Harlan developed the project, but then turned over direction to his friend Braun.

The film was a wartime production, which began shooting in 1942 and was completed in 1944. Planned for a 1945 release, it was blocked by Joseph Goebbels who found the quality poor and disliked the fact that much of it was set in hospitals. It was eventually given a belated post-war release in 1951. By the time it was released, several of its cast members had died.[1]

The film's sets were designed by the art directors Wilhelm Depenau and Alfred Tolle.
