It was made by the Vienna-based Wien-Film which had been established following the German annexation of Austria the previous year. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Kurt Herlth and Werner Schlichting.

The film portrays the various sacrifices of a mother for her children. It was one of the comparatively few films made in Nazi Germany that celebrated the role of mothers in society, despite the Nazi Party's official promotion of a cult of motherhood.[2]
