Inspired by a real event in early 1943.
A Jewish man gets a knock on the door from the Gestapo. Figuring he might as well go down swinging, he throws acid in the face of one of the Nazis, who shoots blindly and hits another Gestapo man in the head and kills him.
Good result, you might think - the Jew even escapes his apartment and goes on the run. The Nazis kill 100 people in retaliation for the initial attack and let it be known that unless the man turns himself in they will shoot 5000 Jews.
Word reaches the man of what the Germans have threatened. What should he do?
In real life, he turned himself in and was promptly executed and left hanging from the gates of a Jewish ghetto.
