Follow the Leader: Oskar and the Nazi Drummers
As we all know from class discussion, the scene with Oskar leading the drummers from underneath the rostrum stage during the Nazi pep rally clearly alludes to how the german people almost blindly followed Hitler and the Nazi's without "viewing the rostrum from behind." Another thing however I'd like to point out is the fact that the nazi drummers don't know where or who is playing the drums, because Oskar is concealed underneath the rostrum. This only adds to the point of following blind.
