Surviving Hitler


"Surviving Hitler"

Genre: Holocaust thriller

An anti-Semitic Holocaust denier awakens in the body of a twelve-year-old girl—48 hours before the Nazis gas the girl's Jewish family.

FINN ends up without a home, a job, and his wife and son, who died in an accident caused by a drunken Jew, which starts the transition that turns Finn into an anti- Semite and with RAFF's help, a holocaust denier.

An incident with a holocaust survivor Zlata at a cemetery propels Finn back to the past and into Zlata's twelve-year-old body when Zlata was a Jewish prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. Through Zlata's eyes and body, Finn first-hand experiences the pain and torture to which were exposed the Nazi death camp prisoners. He battles his anger against the Jews while he is in Zlata's body and, at the same time, confronts the reality of what he claimed were lies about the Holocaust spread by Jews.

Finn returns to the future, confronts Raff, who, driven by anger, threatens to kill Zlata and her granddaughter. A once anti-Semite does what he saw Jews and Gypsies doing in the Nazi camp, he risks his life to save someone who is not his family and at the same time, means his life to him.
