System Details:
"Based on a real case in Magdeburg during the Weimar Republic. The Jewish manufacturer Jacob Blum is framed for the murder of his accountant due to the accusations of Gabler, a thief and dealer of stolen goods. Anti-Semitic prosecutors accept these accusations, as they believe all Jews are criminals. Even with evidence indicating the crime was committed by Gabler, the prosecutors refuse to change their stance. Blum's only hope is a commissar in Berlin, who takes over the investigation and finds the real murderer."--Container.
