Süskind by Johan van den Berg


SÜSKIND tells the true story of Jewish resistance hero Walter Süskind who saved almost a thousand Jewish children from deportation.

1942. In an attempt to save a group of Jewish children from deportation, Walter Süskind befriends the SS officer Ferdinand Aus der Fünten. When the latter discovers that Süskind has been using him and  their friendship is nothing but a lie, the Nazi ruthlessly takes his revenge on the Jew.
