ROSWELL, Ga. -- Georgia Ensemble Theatre welcomes special guest Eva Schloss, childhood friend of Anne Frank, Holocaust survivor and author of Eva’s Story. Audience members will have the rare opportunity to watch Eva’s story unfold in the powerful multi-media production “And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank.”

After the performance is the opportunity to participate in a question and answer discussion with Schloss. Books will be available for purchase and signature in the lobby after the talkback.

“And Then They Came for Me” is a powerful, multi-media Holocaust drama that tells the story of two childhood friends of Anne Frank.

Ed Silverberg’s story is of hiding and escaping from the Nazis, and Eva Geringer Schloss’ story is of surviving the Holocaust after being interned at Auschwitz with her mother.

Ed and Eva share their story on video, while professional actors re-enact their incredible experiences as teenagers in hiding and in concentration camps during WWII. The production is now in its 15th year of touring to elementary and middle schools throughout metro Atlanta.

Due to the intense nature of the content, this performance is appropriate for fifth grade and up.
