World Premier production took place on Friday, August 12, 2016
at the Youngstown Playhouse
Eva Schloss, the childhood friend and step-sister of Anne Frank, was held captive at Auschwitz-Birkenau for nine months along with her mother, father and brother during the latter part of World War II. But Eva's story begins way before that when her family lived happily in Vienna, Austria at the foot of the storied Vienna Woods. Driven from their beautiful home and forced to take refuge in Amsterdam, Holland, due to Hitler's march across Europe, Eva becomes friends with many of the children living in her apartment building including Anne Frank, whose writings would become world famous after the end of the war.
Just like Anne, Eva and her family were forced into hiding when Hitler invaded Holland. And like Anne Frank, she and her family were captured by the Nazis. IMAGES: REMEMBRANCES OF THE HOLOCAUST - THE EVA SCHLOSS STORY by J.E.Ballantyne, Jr. is Eva's story from Vienna up through her present efforts to continue educating adults and students about the horrors of the Holocaust. Told in the format of a one-woman show the audience experiences Eva's life through the performance of an actress portraying Eva along with video segments highlighting other portions of her life. It is a truly powerful evening of live theater of survival, determination, joy and sadness. Eva is someone you will not soon forget nor will forget this memorable theatrical event.
