About this show

Lucy Deutsch - a child Holocaust survivor - brings to life her experience in Auschwitz through her art of writing and poetry, with songs that that will forever live in the hearts and minds of those who hear them. Set in Hungry in 1944, Lucy Deutsch, at the age of 14, is removed with her family from their home and placed in a ghetto, from where they are sent to Auschwitz. She is the only member of her family to survive. Enduring her ordeal through determination, strength, bull-headedness, and a child's fearless innocence, she comes of age when, coming home after Auschwitz, she realizes she is no longer a child and cannot play with her friends any more. The words of her songs tell the story, while the music has all the compassion of a young spirit. Her gift to perform her art and bring it to the stage is testimony to what was lost in the Holocaust. Having survived the worst of inhumanities, this musical illuminates the courage we gain to reaffirm the art of living and create a better world.
