Summary
Trapped in a Polish ghetto with thousands of other Jews facing starvation or deportation to the death camps, Jacob is detained one evening at the local Gestapo headquarters. Eavesdropping, he overhears a radio report about a nearby Russian victory. At first he is silent, but circumstances compel him to pass on the good news of hope. A simple, somewhat dour man, the stubble-bearded Jacob suddenly becomes a hero as old friends and neighbors flock to him, pressing for information about the latest reports. Jacob feels compelled to make up stories to keep up the spirits of his comrades
Note
Includes a documentary about director Frank Beyer: Trace of the Times - Director Frank Beyer, (59 minutes). This film, created by Ullrich Kasten and Ralf Schenk, paints a portrait of a man whose life story is important not only in the realm of film-making, but also because of its insights into 50 years of German history.
