Anne Lehmann and her family no longer feel safe in their Berlin home. Life in Germany is deteriorating quickly for Jews. After the Kristallnacht (''Night of the Broken Glass''), Mr. and Mrs. Lehmann realize that in order to protect their daughter they may have to say goodbye to her forever. Now Anne must struggle to bring meaning out of despair and cling to love and hope even in a world that seems to be filled with hatred and violence. The result is a gripping and poignant production that will inspire audiences to read and learn more about the Holocaust by weaving an emotional bond through art.
