Kurt Gerron was a huge star in Germanys theater and cabaret scene in the 1920s and 1930s, performing with some of the countrys best artists and entertainers of the time to include Marlene Dietrich in Von Sternbergs The Blue Angel. Gerron was the first star to sing Mack the Knife in Brechts Three Penny Opera. But with the rise of Adolf Hitler, the acclaimed Jewish entertainer was relegated to the role of prisoner in a Nazi-run concentration camp. There he was forced to put his talents to use writing and directing a propaganda film The F├╝hrer Gives a City to the Jews showing the world how well-treated the Jews were. It presented the concentration camp as a wonderful place This documentary tells Gerrons shocking and tragic story and provides a fascinating documentary look at the era of 1920s cabaret.
