film ?The Counterfeiters?
Austrian Oscar Award Winning Film by Stefan Ruzowitzky
The movie is based on the story of the printer Adolf Burger and his friend Salomon Sorowitsch, a swindler known as Berlin's "King of the Counterfeiters.? After getting arrested and incarcerated in a German concentration camp, Burger and Sorowitsch were forced to help the Nazis in an organized counterfeit operation. Professional printers, fastidious bank officials and simple craftsmen all became members of the top-secret counterfeiter commando. They had the choice: if they cooperated with the enemy, they had a chance to survive; if they sabotaged the operation, a sure death awaited them.
