Alicia, My Story
Adapted and performed by Betsey Means
Directed by Eileen Vorbach

"I pray that everyone will unite in the resolve that evil forces will never again be permitted to set one people against another."

About Alicia Appleman-Jurman
Alicia is the story of a young girl who managed to survive in a hostile world. While fleeing the Nazis through war-ravaged Poland, she began saving the lives of people she did not know. Her family cruelly wrenched from her, Alicia rescued other Jews from the Gestapo, led them to safe hideouts, and lent them her courage and hope.

Even the sight of her mother's brutal murder could not shatter this remarkable child's faith in human goodness or her determination to prevail against overwhelming odds. Alicia swore on her brother's grave that if she survived, she would speak for her silenced family. This is a thrilling uplifting story of true-life heroism, a story the young must hear and their elders must remember.
