About the Play

Stella Schafer will direct the McCutcheon High School players in a performance of this Holocaust drama.

Greta, a young girl living in Nazi Germany, reads that the nearby women's concentration camp is hiring guards, she sees it as a chance to find her place in the world and provide for her sister Lise. Soon she learns the reality of her duties, and so too does she learn how to justify her crimes, heading further and further down the dark road laid by the Third Reich. Kind-hearted Lise is shocked at what her sister becomes, and though the two drift apart, their fates remain inextricably and dangerously linked. A powerful drama about the choices that allow evil to become ordinary.

This presentation is open to the public. Voluntary donations to the Greater Lafayette Holocaust Remembrance Conference will be appreciated. All donations will be used to support K-12 education in Indiana.
