GER/FRA/POL | 1990 | dir. Agnieszka Holland, with Marco Hofschneider, André Wilms, Ashley Wanninger

As World War II ravages Europe, Salomon (Marco Hofschneider) gets separated from his family after fleeing with them from Germany to Poland, and finds himself reluctantly assuming various identities in order to hide his Jewishness, eventually masquerading as a Nazi German. Based on the real-life experiences of Salomon Perel and directed by Polish director Agnieszka Holland, Europa, Europa is a breathless survival story and a reminder of the horror that WWII brought on Europe.
