Eleanor Ramrath Garner's best-selling memoir of her youth, adapted for the stage and performed by her granddaughter Ingrid. In 1939, when she is nine, Eleanor's family moves from her beloved America to Germany. But war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic and return to the United States becomes impossible. Instead, they must endure hunger, fascist oppression, carpet bombings, the final fierce battle for Berlin, the Russian invasion and the terrors of Soviet occupancy. ***** 'A superb performance... and the powerful story is unforgettable. A must-see' (FringeReview.co.uk).
