Friedrich Wolff’s drama of a German-Jewish doctor’s humiliation and murder at the hands of the Nazis was the basis for a 1938 film produced in Leningrad, largely by German-Jewish émigrés. Released in the US a week after Kristallnacht, it was one of the most widely seen Soviet films of the 1930s; rarely screened since, it’s showing as part of the New York Jewish Film Festival.
