Love, It Was Not

“Love, it was not” is the tragic and unbelievable love story between Helena, a young Jewish prisoner in Auschwitz, and the Austrian SS officer Franz Wunsch. It was a forbidden relationship that endangered both their lives daily and lasted for two years. Around thirty years after they parted ways at the gates of Auschwitz, they see each other again in a Viennese court room – Helena as witness, Franz as the defendant.
