World War 2 Accounts from a German Perspective

About this event

'American Child Under Fascist Dictatorship' Eleanor Ramrath Garner's best-selling memoir, detailing her youth as a U.S. citizen trapped in Nazi Berlin during WWII, has been adapted by granddaughter Ingrid Garner into an internationally award-winning performance. 'Eleanor's Story: An American Girl in Hitler's Germany' traces 9-year-old Eleanor's path from the U.S. to Germany, where her family moves in pursuit of work during the Depression. But when war breaks out as they are crossing the Atlantic, return home becomes impossible. Eleanor struggles to maintain stability, hope, and identity in a world of terror and contrasts. Her family faces hunger, fascist oppression, bombings, the final fierce battle for Berlin, the Russian invasion, and the terrors of Soviet occupancy.
