Review by MORNA MURPHY MARTELL
June 22, 2015

My overall impression

Ingrid Garner brilliantly creates history through a series of different characters, an 8 year old girl, her stern father, her courageous mother, her smart elder brother and the stern voices of the oppressive regime in Germany under Hitler. Its all true, based on her American grandmother’s memoir of being trapped in Germany throughout World War Two. This young girl’s view of the oppression of the average German people, and their eventual punishment from Allied bombings, creates a sad parallel to Anne Frank’s tragic life-saluting diary. A wonderful one-woman performance that my companion Tricia Stubbs, a former teacher, begs to have performed in all the schools so young people will know this history. The book is ‘An American Girl in Hitler’s Germany.’ If you can’t see the play, at least go buy the book.
