When Jakob shares this secret within the ghetto, which has been without news since 1939, spirits are lifted and hope is reborn. When pressed for more information, Jakob has to lie, fabricating news of German defeats, American intervention and the possible imminent end to the war. The Germans learn of the mythical radio however, and begin a search for the resistance hero who dares to operate it.
