DIE GEKREUZIGT WERDEN (THE FORSAKEN JEW) was presumed lost for a long time. The present fragment is based on a screening copy that was in a serious state of decomposition. It was discovered by Filmarchiv Austria and extensively restored. The film tells the story of a tormented man, exposed to ridicule and racism. As a child, Ariel becomes estranged from his deeply religious family because of his lack of interest in the Talmud. Despite his later professional success and his social commitment to factory workers, this rupture casts dark shadows over his journey through life.
