    • Synopsis
    • WO II, Amsterdam is occupied by Nazis. Walter Süskind decides to clap hands with the SS. It’s a dangerous game with which he is able to save a lot of people from deportation to the east, especially children. While the net unrelentingly closes around the distressing Jewish community, the moving and breathtaking history of an opportunist takes place who reveals to be a hero.
