Writer: Erich Maria Remarque
But Katz cannot live with the thought of betraying a friend and kills himself without giving away the information. Having escaped from a concentration camp, Rohde seeks a place to hide from the Gestapo and finds it in Anna's flat. She reluctantly agrees to hide him for a night and gets him a uniform so that he can pose as a Nazi, Schmidt. And she pretends to be his friend with whom he has spent a night in bed.
Realizing that the war is at its end and being lost, Schmidt, the true Nazi, now poses as a Jew and tries to fool the Russians into believing that Rohde was a Nazi.
The Russians do not go for this, catch Schmidt in contradicting himself and finally shoot him. Rhode can convince them that he his not the Nazi he looks, but a Jew who was hiding from the Gestapo. But he is not better of in their hands as he was before under the Nazis.
