Hitler's Counterfeiters

Hitlers Fälscher

This is the true story of the largest organised counterfeiting operation of all time. Former concentration camp inmates, who were involved in counterfeiting operations at Ebensee in Austria, look back on their experiences of this time in a series of moving personal interviews. Adolf Hitler's plan was to substantially weaken the British economy by circulating large numbers of counterfeit British banknotes. To this end, the most talented Jewish printers, typographers, engravers and painters were selected from among the inmates of the concentration camps, to produce the counterfeit money. Sensitively produced, with historically accurate and impressively illustrated scenes, the documentary takes the viewer through everyday life at the concentration camp, the development of the plan and its implementation.
