Storyline

As rumors reach them that the Allied armies are advancing on their concentration camp at Buchenwald, Polish prisoners renew their feeble hope for survival and freedom. When a group of prisoners is transferred from Auschwitz, a four-year-old child is smuggled into the camp in a valise. Born at Auschwitz, he is Jewish and will be killed if discovered. A group of prisoners decide to protect the child from the searching Germans, and although the kapos cannot smuggle the boy out of Buchenwald, they manage to hide him--moving from one place to another within the camp as the Nazis comb it. Threats and torture by SS men fail to turn up the boy who becomes a symbol of the struggle between captives and captors. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

Bruno Apitz was inspired by the story of the child's survival to work his own experiences in Buchenwald (where he was a prisoner from 1937 - 1945) into a movie script. When his expose was turned down by the DEFA he decided to write a novel instead. The novel was enormously successful (it sold 2 million copies and was translated into many languages), prompting the DEFA to reconsider. See more »

great movie
6 March 1999 | by (Lake Arrowhead) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a group of men in a concentration camp that find a small Jewish boy in a suitcase and set about hiding him from the Nazis. There's a lot of movies set in concentration camps and this is surely one of the best, a great character study. The Nazis are played with a matter of fact, almost understated coldness. The men aren't potrayed as heroes, but just everyday guys trying to hold on to some humanity, no matter what the risk. A compelling film.
