MR EMMANUEL (1944):
Set in 1938, Isaac Emmanuel has retired from a Jewish welfare agency in Doomington, England and is looking for something to do with his time. A letter arrives asking him to come to the aid of a friend, who is caring for three German boys, who are refugees from Nazi Germany. One of the three, a Jewish boy named Bruno Rosenheim, is very despondent over the recent death of his father and the disappearance of his mother. He's waiting to get a letter from her, but no letter ever arrives. Mr. Emmanuel, a British citizen, who himself is a former refugee from Russia, sympathizes with the young man. After the lad attempts to take his life, Mr. Emmanuel promises to travel to Germany to find out what he can about Bruno's mother. Once he arrives in Berlin, Emmanuel takes lodging at a boarding-house. He inquires of those around him, not realizing how unusual and potentially dangerous it is to ask such questions.
