A beautiful film at Independent Lens on PBS:
Ina was young, beautiful and rich; Jack was balding, poor and married. They became involved in an unlikely romance, in the even more improbable setting of a Nazi concentration camp. A tale of two, star-crossed lovers, chronicled in secret, lyrical love letters, STEAL A PENCIL FOR ME is a transcendent, complex story of a love affair that began during the Holocaust and continues to survive.
“I am hoping the film will open the eyes of those who doubt the Holocaust existed. But, more importantly, I want to make this time in history accessible to all generations through this intimate love story.” — Michèle Ohayon (Director, Rhodia fan and friend)
