At the end of the movie Oppenheimer prayed to let him life by taking his fortune but it was declined. In real life the judges offered him to become Christian what he declined. Instead he was praying the Schma Jisrael, a verse from the daily prayer from the Thora.

In the movie Oppenheimer is leasing streets and is raising many new taxes. In real life he was creating fortune for the state of Württemberg by leasing the "Stuttgart State Coin", made lottery games and helped in justice problems.
Unlike portrayed in the movie Oppenheimer was adjudged only for his financial deeds, not for having sexual intercourse with a Christian woman. Furthermore it is historically proofed that Oppenheimer had never any sexual relationship to a non-Jewish woman, which however was an antisemitic cliché years before the situation.
The permission for all Jews to enter Stuttgart didn't exist. Oppenheimer only had temporary permission for two business men to enter Stuttgart. The scene with the opened city gate through which many Jews enter the city is pure fictitious for propaganda.
In the movie Oppenheimer commands to violent measures against revolutions and even commands to beat Faber. Not only was the real Oppenheimr an opponent against the torture punishment, he would also not have the right to torture the son of a noble family.
The film tells that Joseph Süß Oppenheimer lived in the Jew Alley (Judengasse) in the ghetto in Frankfurt before he moved to Württemberg. Actually he lived in Württemberg, since his birth in Heidelberg. Even his first meeting with Karl Alexander, before he became Duke of Württemberg was in Bad Wildbad, a place in Württemberg
In the movie Oppenheimer is walking around the duke's palace freely. However in real life it would not be allowed, because he was a Jew.
In the movie Duke Karl Alexander is poisoned, allegedly by Oppenheimer. However the duke died in 1737 cause of a lounge disease.
The announcement for the ban of the Jews at the end of the movie was not done in public.
In real life the conflict between Karl Alexander von Württemberg and the territorial estates were performed without any interferes from Oppenheimer, unlike in the movie where he was actually opening this conflict himself.
