Biographical/Historical Note: This film was made in the 1990s and released in 1999. It follows the life of Andre Steiner, a Jewish architect who saved over 7,000 Jews during the Holocaust by bribing Nazis and creating labor camps. It illuminates both his life during the war and after, when he relocated to Atlanta, GA, and shows him sharing his life story with his sons for the first time. It also includes Andre’s testimony in the war-crimes tribunal against some of the Nazis that he bribed to maintain the labor camps. (Icarus Film, 1999)

After coming to America, Andre continued his work as an architect, got married and had two sons. For most of his time in Atlanta, Andre chose to ignore his past, this film shows him going back to Europe and sharing his life story with his sons. Born August 22, 1908 in Slovakia, Andre died in April of 2009. (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, 1996 )
