JCC Lunch & Show: My Heart In A Suitcase
Wednesday, April 17 | 12:30pm
Anne Lehmann and her family no longer feel safe in their Berlin home. Life in 1938 Germany is deteriorating quickly for the Lehmanns and all Jews living there. In order to protect their daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Lehmann may have to say goodbye to her forever. Anne must struggle to bring meaning out of despair, to cling to love and hope even in a world that seems filled with hatred and violence. ArtsPower’s gripping and poignant production about Anne and her family’s decision whether or not to send her on the Kindertransport is a tribute to the strength of the human spirit and the enduring power of a family’s love. This event is free and open to the entire community.
Funding has been made possible in part by the Jewish Community Foundation and the Annual Campaign of Jewish Federation of Atlantic and Cape May Counties.
