Review

     This story deals centers mainly around Salomon Sarowitsch, a Russian Jew who lived a fast life from counterfeiting money. He is arrested and sent to a concentration camp but his drawing talent gets him transferred to another camp in which he and other Jewish prisoners are interred in a section of the camp known as the "golden cage" because of the preferential treatment they receive. Sarowitsch and his fellow prisoners are tasked with producing forgeries of pound notes and dollar notes which will be used to fund the Nazi war effort. Failure would mean certain death but success is something some members of the team are not entirely comfortable with.  Sarowitsch is a charismatic anti-hero and even though he is a criminal you can't help rooting for him.
