Plot: Trapped in a Polish ghetto with thousands of other Jews, Jacob overhears a radio report about a nearby Russian victory. Eventually, he decides to pass on the news of hope to his fellow prisoners. However, in order to be believed, he feigns access to a radio and becomes a bulwark against despair, and a reluctant but tragic hero. Remade in 1999 with Robin Williams.
