Matinee: April 27, 2:00 PM
Sala Garncarz was 16 years old in 1940, when for 5 years she was interned in seven different forced labor camps in Germany, Poland, and Czechoslovakia. Sala received more than 300 letters that were mailed or smuggled to her by family and friends on the outside or in the camps as well. Remarkably she preserved these letters and hid them for decades following her liberation, before she shared them with her daughter Ann Kirschner. Hutton's adaptation dramatizes the content of the letters.
There will be a Talk-back Session planned with playwright Arlene Hutton.
An exhibit, "Letters to Sala: A Young Woman's Life in Nazi Labor Camps," curated by Jill Vexler and on loan from New York Public Library and the French Children of the Holocaust Foundation, will be on display in the lower level Kreider Gallery of McKinley Hall during the month of April.
