Anne Lehmann and her family no longer feel safe in their Berlin home.

Life in 1938 Germany is deteriorating quickly for the Lehmanns and Jews throughout the country. In order to protect their daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Lehmann may have to say goodbye to her forever, and Anne must struggle to bring meaning out of despair as she clings to love and hope even in a world that seems to be filled with hatred and violence.

Based on the autobiography of Anne Lehmann Fox, ArtsPower’s gripping and poignant production about her family’s decision to send her on the Kindertransport is a tribute to the strength of the human spirit and the enduring power of a family’s love.
