Mr. Joseph’s Empire

Directed by: Doron Eran

In 1940 Joseph Joanovici entered the office of the Gestapo commander in Paris and offered to provide iron to the German army in exchange for saving his family, thus becoming the biggest Jewish collaborator with the Nazi war machine.  He also founded the French underground and saved many jews.  After the war he was tried and sentenced to death, but escaped to Israel, was deported by Ben-Gurion, and died homeless in Paris in 1965.
