Storyline

One of the main works of the Age of Enlightenment, a powerful plea in favour of tolerance, humanity and freedom of opinion. Set in the age of the crusades, it deals with the relations between the three monotheistic religions. Lessing includes the historical figure of Sultan Saladin, the Jewish merchant Nathan is a portrait of his friend, the renowned philosopher Moses Mendelssohn - when the play was published in 1779, this was considered breaching a taboo. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Trivia

Considered to be a lost film until a print was found in Moscow in 1996 by German researchers who were consulting the Gosfilmofond (Russian archives). It was a deteriorated black-and-white copy called "Jerusalem's Storm" without displaying the original title and with new chapters abruptly included. A copy was made from this remaining version (since the original nitrate was lost), receiving a color treatment like the ones in 1920s films and corrections taken from notes of the German censors' archives.
