Letters to salaThe New Bedford High School Drama Club presents Letters to Sala by Arlene Hutton

Based on a true account, LETTERS TO SALA is adapted from the book Sala's Gift by Ann Kirschner. This heart-wrenching story of a young girl's survival during wartime Germany over five years, seven Nazi labor camps and over 350 hidden letters. Sala Garncarz Kirschner kept her secret letters for over fifty years, concealing her painful history in a box. LETTERS TO SALA draws from the emotional journeys that begin for Sala and her grown daughter, Ann when the letters resurface.

Through scholarly research, Ann realizes that her mother's letters have made a historically significant impact on Holocaust documentation. Ann's study of the letters throws Sala into the past again as she relives her youth, recalling her desire for adventure, the disillusionment of her life in the work camps, and her loss of communication with the outside world as the war progressed around her.
