During World War II, some one hundred Jewish prisoners counterfeited cash for the Third Reich, despite the knowledge that they would be killed when their work was done. "Barrack 18" is the true story of these prisoners and the counterfeited currency that was used by the Nazis to pay for German spies during World War II. Produced by New York correspondent Jon Kalish.
