Blonde Poison


Blonde Poison is based on the true story of a Jewish woman during World War II who betrayed up to 3,000 fellow Jews. Stella Goldschlag was living illegally in war-torn Berlin when she herself was betrayed and tortured. When offered the chance of saving herself and her parents from the death camps, she agreed to inform on Jews in hiding. She was extraordinarily successful and her activities increased after her parents were finally deported. The Gestapo called her “Blonde Poison.” Decades after the war, Stella agrees to be interviewed by a well-respected journalist—her last chance for redemption. Can she ever be released from her past?
