A Polish Jewish filmmaker known for the Holocaust film “Europa Europa” is making a film on the life of a Romanian Holocaust survivor, according to Variety magazine. Agnieszka Holland’s film will be based on “The Seamstress: A Memoir of Survival,” the autobiography of Tuvel Bernstein, in which she recalled her childhood in a Romanian mountain village, her survival during World War II as a seamstress, her imprisonment in the Ravensbruck concentration camp and her search to find lost relatives after the war. Bernstein died in 1983 at the age of 65.
