Anne Lehmann and her family no longer feel safe in their Berlin home. Life in Germany is deteriorating quickly for the Lehmanns and all Jews in Germany; in order to protect their daughter,
Mr. and Mrs. Lehmann may have to say goodbye to her forever. Now Anne must struggle to bring meaning out of despair, to cling to love and hope even in a world that
seems to be filled with hatred and violence.
The result is a gripping and poignant production, a tribute to the strength of the human spirit. ArtsPower hopes to touch the hearts and minds
of old and young alike by adapting a survivor’s story, to inspire audiences to read and learn more about the Holocaust by weaving an emotional bond through art.
As they show young people what happened in Germany and in other occupied nations prior to and during World War II – and how a heroine survived
thanks to her own courage and the generosity of others – ArtsPower will teach them the importance of combating intolerance. The ultimate goal is to motivate
children not only to appreciate reading and the theatre but also to love and respect all their fellow human beings.
