CWB is proud to host 10 school performances of Letters To Sala as well as a travelling photo exhibit and time line of Sala's journey curated by the New York Public Library

Adapted from the book, Sala's Gift by Ann Kirschner and based on a true account, Letters To Sala is a remarkable story of a young Jewish girl's survival during wartime Germany. Over the period of five years, and whilst incarcerated in seven Nazi labor camps, Sala Garncarz Kirschner was able to accumulate and keep hidden over 350 letters she received from family, friends, and neighbors. The performance Letters To Sala documents Sala's experience during the Holocaust and draws from the emotional journeys that began for both Ann and Sala when the letters are read once again.

Please join us for one of two community performances: Both performances are Free and Open to the Public

After the performance meet guest speakers: Ann Kirschner, Sala's daughter and the author of Sala's Gift, and Arlene Hutton, the playwright of Letters To Sala!

Monday, November 14 7:00 p.m. Duquesne University's Genesius Theater
