Playing for Time 1980

Female prisoners in a Nazi concentration camp (Auschwitz) are spared from death in return for performing music for their captors.
When Jewish songstress Fania Fénelon (Vanessa Redgrave) is plucked from the stage and sent to Auschwitz, she and other musicians find themselves assigned to a terrible task: using their talents to soothe fellow prisoners who are sentenced to die in the gas chambers. Daniel Mann directs this Emmy-winning television movie based on Fénelon's autobiography; famed playwright Arthur Miller penned the script.
