Love, It Was Not

Presented By

A tragic love story between a Jewish prisoner and SS officer.

Beautiful and full of life, Helena Citron is taken to Auschwitz as a young woman, and soon finds unlikely solace under the protection of Franz Wunsch, a high-ranking SS officer who falls in love with her and her magnetic singing voice. Risking execution if caught, they went on with their forbidden relationship until the war ended and the camp was liberated.

30 years later, a letter arrives from Wunsch’s wife asking Helena to “return the favour” – testify on Wunsch’s behalf. Faced with an impossible decision, Helena must choose. Will she help the man who brutalised so many lives, but saved hers, along with some of the people closest to her?
