This "incredible, true story" (Los Angeles Times) is at once "eye-opening, harrowing and humorous" (Leonard Maltin) as it recounts the severe actions a young boy must take in order to survive the Holocaust. Based on the autobiography of Solomon Perel, a young German Jew, the film "bounds from one jaw-dropping episode to the next" (The New Yorker) and puts you in the middle of war-torn Europe where ingenuity, timing and luck are the key to survival. Separated from his family at the age of thirteen, Solly (Marco Hofschneider) takes on various identities to hide his Jewishheritage. First passing himself off as an orphan and later as one of the "Hitler Youth," Solly carries on his charade, hoping desperately to keep his identity hidden and make it through the war alive.

The one weakness of the DVD that I own is that the soundtrack is slightly misaligned in a few places. This is only slightly annoying, since most of us will be reading subtitles and not watching mouths, but hopefully editors will match the voices with lips more accurately in future editions.
A great documentary to watch either before or after this dramatic film is 'War of the Century: When Hitler Fought Stalin'. This, too, does a great job capturing what life was like on both sides of the Eastern Front.
