Frankfurt, 1946. David Bermann and his Jewish friends have escaped the Nazi regime and are now dreaming of leaving for America. But how will they get the money in these tough post-war times? The smooth-talking businessman focuses on what the Germans now need most: fine bed linens nicely wrapped in amusing stories. The six talented entertainers go from home to home, praising housewives with ashy chutzpah until the flattered ladies have no choice but to buy their irresistible items.

A different dimension of an old story. I enjoyed it. No society, race, religion is perfect. There are good and bad people in every society and at every level.

Really two skillfully interwoven stories-- one, a band of Jewish Holocaust survivors needing to raise money by any means, in order to escape Germany for America after the War; the other, a man accused of collaborating with the Nazis while imprisoned trying to forget his past indiscretions, and convince the Americans he was only attempting to survive. The stories connect through David Bermann whose scheme entails selling linens, and bath & kitchen towels to Germans who lost family during the war, by ingratiating themselves as lost comrades in arms. Flashbacks also explore Bermann's own imaginative or perceived experiences as a prisoner of war in the Sachsenhausen Concentration camp.
