Letters to Sala (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Sala Garncarz was 16 in 1940, when she volunteered to take her sister's

place in a Nazi work camp. Over the next five years and she endured

seven camps and collected, at great risk to herself, a cache of more

than 350 letters, postcards, photographs, and other documents sent to

her and others during that time. Flash forward to 1991. Sala Garncarz

Kirschner is living in America and about to undergo heart surgery.

Worried that she might not survive, she reveals to her family the

secret she had kept hidden for over 50 years.

Adapted by award-winning

playwright Arlene Hutton from the book Sala's Gift by Ann Kirschner,

Letters to Sala draws from the emotional journeys that begin for Sala

and her daughters when the letters resurface. Should they be shared as

part of the historical record of the Holocaust or are they private

family documents? Three generations of Kirschner women must work

together to come to terms with the legacy of Sala's letters and the

horrors of her past. In this powerful play, Arlene Hutton masterfully

moves between the past and the present, driving the two stories to a

single gripping question: What is to be done with these letters?
