The play, "Letters to Sala" is adapted from the book Sala's Gift by Ann Kirschner and based on a true account. This remarkable story is about a young girl's survival during wartime Germany. Five years. Seven Nazi labor camps. More than 350 hidden letters. Sala Garncarz Kirschner kept her secret for over fifty years, concealing her incredibly painful history in a Spill and Spell box. Everything changes when Sala reveals the cache to her grown daughter, Ann. Sala's letters, which were displayed in a special exhibition at the New York Public Library in 2006, are an important addition to Holocaust research, called, as one journalist noted, "the greatest find since Anne Frank's diary."
