La jaquette indique : "Berlin 1936, Salomon Sorowitsch est le roi des faussaires, expert en billets de banque. Juif sous l'Allemagne nazie, il est arrêté et interné dans le camp de Sachsenhausen où se trame l'Opération Bernhard. Les nazis souhaitent en effet affaiblir l'économie des alliés grâce à des juifs experts en fausse monnaie, chargés de fabriquer à grande échelle des devises étrangères. Si leur travail n'est pas couronné de succès, les faux-monnayeurs seront exécutés. Il ne s'agit plus de sauver sa peau à tout prix mais d'interroger sa conscience."
The devil's workshop : a memoir of the Nazi counterfeiting operation by Adolf Burger ( )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most remarkable episodes of WWII was the Nazi attempt to forge currency and trigger the economic collapse of the Allies. The counterfeit operation was one of the largest the world has ever seen and lead to the postwar reissue of sterling. At the Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin, 144 Jewish prisoners of 13 different nationalities were forced to work on producing counterfeit pound and dollar notes worth billions. The plan was known as Operation Bernhard. The forgeries that were produced were virtually undetectable: only the most senior forgers were able to spot fakes, where

"The Counterfeiters is the true story of the largest counterfeiting operation in history, set up by the Nazis in 1936. Salomon "Sally" Sorowitsch is the king of counterfeiters. He lives a mischievous life of cards, booze, and women in Berlin during the Nazi era. Suddenly his luck runs dry when arrested by Superintendent Friedrich Herzog. Immediately thrown into the Mauthausen concentration camp, Salomon exhibits exceptional skills there and is soon transferred to the upgraded camp of Sachsenhausen. Upon his arrival, he once again comes face to face with Herzog, who is there on a secret mission. Hand-picked for his unique skill, Salomon and a group of professionals are forced to produce fake foreign currency under the program Operation Bernhard. The team, which also includes detainee Adolf Burger, is given luxury barracks for their assistance. But while Salomon attempts to weaken the economy of Germany's allied opponents, Adolf refuses to use his skills for Nazi profit and would like to do something to stop Operation Bernhard's aid to the war effort. Faced with a moral dilemma, Salomon must decide whether his actions, which could prolong the war and risk the lives of fellow prisoners, are ultimately the right ones" (Sony Pictures Classics)
