More About Out of the Ashes - Christine Lahti
 
 
 
Overview

Christine Lahti stars in this harrowing made-for-cable film based on the real-life story of Gisella Perl, a Jewish Hungarian doctor imprisoned in the notorious Auschwitz death camp of World War II. Perl's story is told in flashback as she sits before an immigration panel in the U.S. seeking American citizenship after the war. Facing her inquisitors' accusations of collaborating with the Nazis because of her work as camp doctor, Perl is forced to relive her horrifying experiences and the difficult moral choices she had to make in order to survive. Features supporting turns from Bruce Davison, Richard Crenna, and Beau Bridges as Lahti's INS interrogators.
