This musical one act play written by Elisabeth Wagner and performed by Lina de Guevara with Elisabeth Wagner at the piano lasts for one hour. There will be a short “Question and Answer” session following each performance.
Alice Herz-Sommer was born in Prague and lived through World War II playing piano recitals in Theresienstadt ghetto. At the time of her death, at 110 years of age, she was the world’s oldest Holocaust survivor. Besides having a remarkable story of a cultured upbringing, and a story of endurance and survival, Alice had an extraordinary ability to embrace life and the people she met. In the play, the audience is warmly invited into her living room and given the opportunity to hear some of her stories, her music and her simple but profound wisdom.
