Jakob the Liar by Frank Beyer( Visual )

Trapped in a Polish ghetto with thousands of other Jews facing starvation or deportation to the death camps, Jacob is detained one evening at the local Gestapo headquarters. Eavesdropping, he overhears a radio report about a nearby Russian victory. At first he is silent, but circumstances compel him to pass on the good news of hope. In order to be believed, he feigns access to a hidden, strictly forbidden radio. Quickly he becomes a one-man bulwark against despair, a reluctant hero, but a tragic figure still-- a man ultimately powerless to see or change the fate of his people

Skřivánci na niti = Larks on a string by Jiří Menzel( Visual )

"Mitte der 50er Jahre. Der Schrottplatz eines Hüttenkombinats bei Kladno dient als Umerziehungslager für "bourgeoise Elemente" und Feinde des Systems. Die einstigen Werte - vom Christus am Kreuz bis zur Schreibmaschine - werden zu Maschinen für den sozialistischen Aufbau umgeschmolzen. [...] Ein zwischen poetischer Gestaltung, überzeugender humaner Parteinahme und folkloristischen Momenten angelegtes filmisches Meisterwerk, das mit subtil-subversivem Humor die Fassaden von Politik und Ideologie durchlöchert. Virtuos verbinden sich bissige politische Kommentare mit warmherziger Sympathie für die Menschen." []

Ein osteuropäisches jüdisches Ghetto im Jahre 1944. Jakob Heym wird wegen angeblicher Überschreitung der Ausgangssperre von einem Posten zum Gestapo-Revier geschickt. Durch Zufall kommt er mit dem Leben davon, und zufällig hat er dort im Radio eine Meldung über den Vormarsch der Roten Armee gehört. Er möchte die Nachricht an seine Leidensgefährten weitergeben, um ihnen Hoffnung zu machen, hat aber Angst, man würde ihn wegen seiner "Verbindung" zur Gestapo für einen Spitzel halten. So greift er zu einer Lüge, gibt vor, ein Radio versteckt zu haben. Die Menschen im Ghetto schöpfen neuen Lebensmut, es gibt keine Selbstmorde mehr, und man möchte von Jakob immer neue Informationen über den Vormarsch. Er muß weiterlügen, damit die Hoffnung bleibt. Sein Freund Kowalski hilft, die Nachrichten zu verbreiten, läßt sich sogar von einem Wachposten zusammenschlagen, um Jakob zu schützen, als der auf der Toilette aus Zeitungsfetzen der Nazis wahre Nachrichten zu finden sucht. Ein kleines Mädchen entdeckt kurz vor der Deportation, daß Jakob kein Radio hat, aber seine Lüge und mit ihr die Hoffnung erweisen sich stärker als die Realität
