The Man Who Stole Hitler


"The Man Who Stole Hitler"

Genre: Holocaust thriller

A tenacious dentist has 24 hours to outsmart the Russians, steal Hitler's remains, and exchange them for his soon-to-be gassed Jewish family.

To survive in Nazi camp, the Jewish medic ELI trains as a document forger and works for the SS officer WOLF, whose daughter ANNA and Eli's son JAN, are good friends to dislike of the Nazi officer KURT. Kurt is a Nazi beast who shrinks the heads of Jewish prisoners. He transfers Eli's son and wife to another camp to manipulate Eli to make him fake documents, to escape the approaching Allied Forces.

The news of Hitler's death forces the German guards to abandon the camp, and the Jewish prisoners soon follow them. The next morning, Kurt, Eli, Wolf, and Anna face an empty camp, and the Russian officer VASILIY whose troop searches for Hitler's gold. Vasiliy's plan disrupts the arrival of another Russian unit, which carries Hitler's body to Stalin. Eli, desperate to save his family, joins the Russians and finds out they plan to murder him after Vasiliy gets the fake papers he needs to reach a hidden Nazi treasure in Austria. Both Russian companies clash and end up half dead. Vasiliy comes out victorious and with Anna blackmails Eli to make him his papers. Eli realizes that the Russians are no better than the Nazis; he outfoxes the Russians with Wolf's help and rescues his family.

Ten years after the end of WW2, Wolf works on Eli's farm, and Jan and Anna expect their first baby. In his barn, Eli hides the uniforms of Jewish prisoners, which now guard the shrunken head of ADOLF HITLER.
