This notorious Nazi propaganda historical costume melodrama is based on the Nazi version of the novel of the same title by Lion Feuchtwanger, which is based on the real historical character of Josef Süss Oppenheimer who was a Jewish tax adviser to Karl Alexander during the early 1700's and was publicly executed in Stuttgart for manipulation of state funds.
