Plot Summary: A unique and incredible love story, "Steal a Pencil for Me" is a compelling documentary about the power of love and the ability of human kind to rise above unimaginable suffering. 1943: Holland is under total Nazi occupation. In Amsterdam, Jack Polak, an unassuming accountant, first meets Ina Soep at a birthday party – a 20-year-old beauty from a wealthy diamond manufacturing family who instantly steals his heart. But Jack's pursuit of love will be complicated; he is poor and married to Manja, a flirtatious and mercurial spouse. When the Jews are being deported, the husband, the wife and the lover find themselves at the same concentration camp, actually living in the same barracks. When Jack's wife objects to the "lover" in spite of their unhappy marriage, Jack and Ina resort to writing secret love letters, which sustain them throughout the horrible circumstances of the war. Jack: "I'm a very special Holocaust survivor. I was in the camps with my wife and my girlfriend; and believe me, it wasn't easy."
