Sinopsis: One of the most remarkable episodes of WWII was the Nazi attempt to forge currency and trigger the economic collapse of the Allies. The counterfeit operation was one of the largest the world has ever seen and lead to the postwar reissue of sterling.

At the Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin, 144 Jewish prisoners of 13 different nationalities were forced to work on producing counterfeit pound and dollar notes worth billions. The plan was known as Operation Bernhard.

The forgeries that were produced were virtually undetectable: only the most senior forgers were able to spot fakes, where even the Bank of England failed to do so.

In this extraordinary memoir, the sole surviving Czech counterfeiter Adolf Burger describes his wartime experiences, including the murder of his wife Gizela in Auschwtiz and his time as a prisoner in four concentration camps. He was working as a counterfeiter until his liberation from the Ebensee camp on 5 May 1945 and was present at Toplitzee lake on July 5th 2000 when thousands of forged notes were brought to the surface.

Supported by hitherto unseen documentation and photographs that Burger took of his fellow prisoners after the war, this is a shocking account which sheds fresh light on the calculated barbarity of the Nazi war machine.

Adolf Burger was a consultant for the film The Counterfeiters, winner of the 2008 Foreign Language Oscar. His memoir has been published in Hungarian, Persian, Japanese and Czech. He continues to travel to speak about his wartime experiences.

Descripción SB 288 ppPublished Price £19.99 The story of how the Nazis recruited a talented team of Jewish prisoners and put them to work forging British and other Allied banknotes is one of the great legends of the Second World War - and this book reveals the truth from the inside. At Sachsenhausen concentration camp outside Berlin 144 Jewish prisoners from 13 different countries were made to produce perfect forged banknotes in a scam the Nazis called Operation Bernhard. Adolf Burger, author of this unique memoir, is the only survivor of this ÔdevilÕs workshopÕ. Originally from Czechoslovakia, Burger saw his wife Gizela murdered by the Nazis and knew the inside of four concentration camps before he was put to work as a forger. He continued to work as a counterfeiter as the operation moved from camp to camp to evade the advancing allied armies. The operation - designed to destablise the economies of the Allies - ended in failure when the notes were dumped in the remote Austrian mountain lake of Toplitzsee. Remarkably, Burger was present in July 2000 when thousands of them were recovered. Throughout his captivity Burger took secret notes and even photographs, and the resulting book is both an insight into Nazi barbarity - and a moving story of human survival in the direst conditions.
