the-counterfeiters

The Counterfeiters (German: Die Fälscher) is a 2007 Austrian-German drama film written and directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky. It fictionalizes “Operation Bernhard”, a secret plan by Nazi Germany during the Second World War to destabilize the United Kingdom by flooding its economy with forged Bank of England pound notes. The film centres on a Jewish counterfeiter, Salomon ‘Sally’ Sorowitsch, who is coerced into assisting the operation at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
The film is based on a memoir written by Adolf Burger, a Jewish Slovak typographer who was imprisoned in 1942 for forging baptismal certificates to save Jews from deportation, and was later interned at Sachsenhausen to work on “Operation Bernhard”.[2] Ruzowitsky consulted closely with Burger through almost every stage of the writing and production. The film won the 2007 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar at the 80th Academy Awards.

Ke-nekt’ Chamber Music Series: Countertenor Reginald Mobley
Wednesday, February 8, 2017 • 7:30PM
Host: Mihoko Tsutsumi
Sheldon Hall Ballroom
Pre-concert Talk 7:00PM

Countertenor Reginald Mobley delights audiences with his “crystalline diction and pure, evenly produced tone” (Miami Herald), and “elaborate and inventive ornamentation” (South Florida Classical Review). His natural and preferred habitat as a countertenor soloist is within the Baroque works of Bach, Charpentier, Handel, and Purcell but is equally comfortable in repertoire of later periods, musical theatre, jazz standards, and torch songs.
