While All Germans Sleep

(Wenn alle Deutschen schlafen)

Germany, 1994, 72 min, color
In German; English subtitles


After 50 years, Marek remembers his dangerous adventure as a five-year-old, when he and his friend Itzek left a Polish transit camp one night in 1942 – a few days before their evacuation to Auschwitz – to go get the toys they forgot at the ghetto.


Based on Becker's personal memories and his 1980 short story "The Wall."
