Description: This film is based on historical facts. A conniving, ambitious Jew, Süß Oppenheimer, snares a post as treasurer to the Duke of Wurttemburg by showering the duke with treasure and promises of even greater riches. As the Jew's schemes grow more elaborate and his actions more brazen, the dukedom nearly erupts into civil war. Persuaded by the Jew, the Duke all but scuttles the constitution and alienates the assembly by lifting the local ban on Jews in Stuttgart. When the Duke succumbs to a sudden heart attack, the assembly of Elders try the Jew and sentence him to death.
This film is partially based on the 1925 historical novel Jud Süß by Lion Feuchtwanger as well as the 1827 novella by Wilhelm Hauff. The historic sources regarding Joseph Süß Oppenheimer as still accessible at the Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg.
