Berkley Books, a unit of Penguin Books, has canceled the planned February publication of “Angel at the Fence,” a memoir by Herman Rosenblat, a man who said he met his wife while a prisoner at a concentration camp during the Holocaust....

... Atlantic Overseas Pictures, which is making a movie based on Mr. Rosenblat’s story, said it would proceed with production and “portray the fictional elements of the love story.” Atlantic said that Mr. Rosenblat had “agreed to donate all monies from the film to Holocaust survivor charities as a condition to moving forward.”
