In this Oscar-winner for Best Foreign Language Film, a Jewish man wrestles with his complicity in the Nazi war effort as a measure of survival. A gifted artist and counterfeiter, Salomon Sorowitsch uses his skills to win favors in the Mauthausen concentration camp. At Sachsenhausen, he works with a group to counterfeit the British pound and the American dollar, part of Operation Bernhard to wreak havoc on the Allied economies. They must account for their collaboration when Holocaust survivors take over the camp after the Germans flee at the end of the war.
