This is the only film known to be made by the Nazis inside an operating concentration camp. Germany's Ministry of Propaganda produced this 1944 film about Theresienstadt, the "model" ghetto established by the Nazis in 1941 in Terezin, a town in the former Czechoslovakia. Goebbles intended to use the film to prove to the International Red cross and the world that Jews were being well-treated in the camps. The film, however, is an elaborately staged hoax presenting a completely false picture of camp life. Upon completion, the director and most of the cast of prisoners were shipped to Auschwitz. Only a few survived to attest to the falsity of the film

Through the love story of Polly Peachum and Mack the Knife Macheath, the play satirizes the bourgeois of the Weimar Republic, revealing a society at the height of decadence and on the verge of chaos.

"Die Tochter eines Apothekers, von der Familie nach der Geburt eines unehelichen Kindes verstoßen, gerät in ein Bordell. Sie trifft dort auf ihren Vater, der vor Bestürzung darüber einige Tage später stirbt, und heiratet schließlich einen Grafen. In seinem letzten Stummfilm umschifft Pabst leidlich geschickt die Klippen des kolportagehaften Sujets und lotet jenseits einiger Sentimentalitäten die sozialen und moralischen Abgründe aus, so daß letztlich die Rettung um so wirkungsvoller ausfällt. Als filmhistorisches Dokument vor allem wegen der herausragenden Hauptdarstellerin sehenswert." [film-dienst.de]
