Based on the memoir by Solomon Perel (1925-), this film tells the story how a Jewish boy survives World War II. Displaced by Kristallnacht and the Invasion of Poland, Solomon winds up in a Russian orphanage after losing his family. When Germans invade, Solomon adopts the identity of a Balkan German and quickly becomes a favored mascot. An officer sends him to an elite Nazi school for Hitler Youth, where hiding his identity is much harder as he must adapt to the different roles he is expected to play as a young German man in order to survive the war. The film won a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film in 1992.
