Sonja, a model student, becomes a celebrity when she wins an essay contest.

Human failure ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The expropriation of assets from German Jews, during the Third Reich, benefitted virtually every German citizen. It was not only the Gestapo who invaded Jewish residences in order to confiscate all property, from bank accounts to the last shirt, it was the German tax officials. A competition evolved between bureaucrats as to how to organize the robbery of the Jews before they were expelled, or sent to their deaths. Larger assets went to the tax offices, and the smaller assets and goods were sold to friends and neighbors in public auctions of "non-Aryan" property. Many of the documents proving this expropriation were lost or destroyed; the ones that remained were hidden away. Using first-hand accounts, award-winning filmmaker Michael Verhoeven goes on a search to unearth evidence documenting one of the greatest robberies in human history"--Container
