About The Magician of Auschwitz
The true story of Werner, a young Jewish boy in Auschwitz who shares his bunk with a kind, quiet man named Herr Levin. Levin seems like any other prisoner, until one night he performs magic for the guards, telling Werner that his life depends on his ability to entertain their captors.
