Summary
Salomon Sorowitsch was a swindler who made a name for himself as Berlin's "King of the Counterfeiters." However, his life of women and easy money was cut short when he was arrested and placed in a Nazi concentration camp. With the German army on the verge of bankruptcy, Sorowitsch made a sobering deal with his captors: in exchange for a comfortable, bed, good food and fair treatment, Sorowitsch, along with other hand-picked specialists, would counterfeit bank notes to fund the Nazi war effort
