In the Theresienstadt Ghetto, a high-ranking SS officer has arrived to inspect preparations for a possible visit from the International Red Cross.  In the ghetto, the world-renown director Kurt Gerron is supervising a film, which will show the world how well the Jews are being treated in this "paradise ghetto".  But in the meantime, there are plots and plans by some of the ghetto's residents to let the real story of the ghetto reach the ears of the world.  The Germans decide that one of the best ways to deal with these potential annoyances is to organize another transport out of Theresienstadt to German "factories" at Birkenau.

Closely based on historical fact, the obvious manipulations of the names of certain historical figures (especially those of the Judenrat) do not detract from this pseudo-documentary about Theresienstadt.

DVD-R is in German and Czech with swithchable English subtitles.  Approx. 92 mins.  See video sample for picture and audio quality!
