Cheating Hitler: Surviving the Holocaust

History, Saloon Media


Documentary & Factual - History and Biography

Cheating Hitler is a modern-day investigation into lingering mysteries from the Holocaust. Three survivors and family members travel to Poland, Ukraine, and Lithuania exploring some of the hidden and rarely visited sites where the Holocaust occurred. They consult with historians, genealogists and forensic experts and uncover new life-changing information. Original research conducted in this film resulted in Holocaust survivor Maxwell Smart being reunited with a person he saved from the Nazis in 1943. That story made the front page of the National Post and was picked up by news services around the world.
