Jerzy, you know

Let's get together,


Smile. Good.

Yes, sir.

Bring them over

a round of drinks.

Very good, sir. And who

shall I say they are from?

You can say

they are from me.

From the gentleman.


Do you know him?

Find out who he is.

Yes, sir.

Agnieszka, I would give anything

to hear you sing tonight.

But I know you won't.

You embarrass me.

What's he doing?

Stay here.

How are you doing?

You'd leave a woman alone at

the table in a place like this?

Sweetheart, you're

the picture of loneliness.


Mmm, what a lovely fragrance.

You are breaking my heart.

An extra chair, please.

Vodka for my friend.

And for the lady?

Thank you.

I'll tell you what

I mean by cooperative.

Two days after

the law is passed

that all Jews have

to wear the star,

the Jewish tailors are

turning them out by the gross

in a variety of

fabrics at three zloty each.

Tell me about

your cellar wines.

I have an excellent German

Riesling. 1937. Mmm, French.

A Bordeaux. Chteau Latour,

'28,'29? No, I'm sorry.

It's as if they have no idea

what kind of law it is.

As if it's the emblem

of a riding club.

A Margaux,'29?

No, no, we don't have that.

Burgundy then? A

Romane-Conti,'37? Yes.

It's human nature.

"We'll do this to avoid that."

That's what they have done

since thousands of years.

It's what they do.

They weather the storm.

But this storm is different. This is

not the Romans. This storm is the SS.

Private property

cannot be confiscated.

How long are the schools

going to be closed?

I do not know.

"Article 47, pillage

is formally prohibited."

You don't know anything!

I am familiar with the Hague

Convention. Religious...

They come into our house and tell

us we don't live there anymore.

It now belongs to

a certain SS officer.

Please. I only know

what they tell me.

And what they tell me

changes from day to day.

Aren't you supposed

to be able to help?

I mean, what if I

just took this thing off?

What are they

going to do about it?

They will shoot you.

Why don't you stop this

silly talk? tzhak Stern!

I'm looking for Itzhak Stern.

Are you Itzhak Stern or not?

I am.

Where can we talk?

There's a company you did the

books for on Lipowa Street.

Made what?

Pots and pans?

By law, I have to

tell you, sir, I'm a Jew.

Well, I'm a German.

So there we are.

A good company,

you think?

Modestly successful.

I know nothing about

enamelware. Do you?

I was just

the accountant.

Simple engineering though,

wouldn't you think?

Change the machines around,

whatever you do...

You could make other things,

couldn't you?

Field kits, mess kits.

Army contracts.

Once the war ends, forget

it, but for now it's great.

You can make a fortune,

don't you think?

I think most people right now

have other priorities.

Like what?

I'm sure you'll do just fine

once you get the contracts.

In fact, the worse things get,

the better you'll do.

Well, I can get the signatures

I need. That's the easy part.

Finding the money to buy

the company, that's hard.

You don't have any money?

Not that kind of money.

You know anybody?

Jews, yeah. Investors.

You must have contacts in

the Jewish business community,

working here.

What community? Jews can

no longer own businesses.

That's why this

one's in receivership.

But they wouldn't own it.

I'd own it. I'd pay them back

in product, pots and pans.

Pots and pans.

Something they can use.

Something they can

feel in their hands.

They can trade it

on the black market,

do whatever they want.
