For a Look or a Touch

For a Look or a Touch, the gay-themed music drama inspired by the true love story of Manfred Lewin and Gad Beck, two young men who were doubly targeted in Nazi Germany as both Jewish and gay. Manfred was murdered in Auschwitz, but his journal with its poetic entries about his love with Gad was preserved and now resides in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Gad survived harsh imprisonment and lived until 2012.
