Yom Kippur

Three concentration camp prisoners, an assimilated Jewish financier, a poor Jew, and a rabbi, are forced to desecrate their holiest holiday, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, by staging a farcical entertainment and by using the abandoned property of those already exterminated for their costumes and stage properties. Even after submitting to the Nazis' irrational demands, the prisoners face the same fate as those already sent to the gas chambers.
