"Surviving Hitler : A love story", is it actually (all) tue ?

    Have just seen "Surviving Hitler : A love story" on the TV. In some ways it was really uplifting, particularly to read about brave anti Nazi Germans, then on the other hand it was also deeply depressing to be reminded just how evil many of those Nazis were. Hitler certainly had a lot to answer for. I`d have loved to know whether that SOAB Gestapo chief got his comeupance at the end of the war but, unfortunately, we weren`t told.

    However there were a few things about it which we just couldn`t understand :

    Why would someone (Jutta, the heroine) give themselves up to the Gestapo ?
    Why would the Gestapo be sufficiently bothered about her survival to not only keep her alive but actually allow a doctor to come in regularly to treat her for a feigned illness ?
    What are the chances that the above mentioned doctor just happens to be an anti Nazi prepared to pass notes to/from her under the noses of the Gestapo ?
    How come her Jewish Mother was not only released from the concentration camp but escorted back to Berlin "by two SS officers" ?
    Also her Father (who was implicated in the anti Nazi resistance) survived being arrested as did her boyfriend [Helmuth, arrested for being implicated in the Hitler bomb plot], particularly at a time in the war when the Nazis would shoot anyone who was remotely suspected of treachery ?

    Does anyone have any info about this programme ?
