Hitlerjunge Salomon Europa Europa ( visu )
1 edition published in 2003 in German and held by 704 libraries worldwide
This film dramatizes the bizarre but true story of Solomon "Solly" Perel, a Jew who avoided the concentration camps and certain death by hiding in plain sight. After Kristallnacht, his family flees to Poland, but soon after Solly has lost his brother and is alone, living by luck and wits. Solly finds himself in a series of adventures: in a Russian orphanage, captured by a German unit, celebrated as a hero, and sent in triumph to a Hitler Youth School. Although born on the same day as the Führer, Solly is circumcised and so must avoid intimate encounters. He fends off both a homosexual Nazi and a beautiful, virulently anti-Semitic girlfriend who's dying to conceive an Aryan child for the Fatherland. Despite some narrow escapes, Solly thrives through the chaos, as it seems a higher power is keeping an eye on him

"A bold trio of stories about love and loss ... [that] was a defining event of the art-house boom of the 90s. The films are named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution: liberty, equality, and fraternity--but that hardly explains their enigmatic beauty and rich humanity.
