My Heart in a Suitcase 

When: Sun., April 27, 10 a.m. 2014
Seventy-five years ago, some 10,000 Jewish children from Germany, Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia were evacuated to Britain to avoid death at the hands of Nazis. Their parents stayed behind, and in many cases the children were the only members of their families to survive the Holocaust. To commemorate that famous event, known as the Kindertransport, the Nashville Jewish Federation is presenting My Heart in a Suitcase, a play based on the memoirs of one of the Kindertransport children, Anne L. Fox. The play, written and performed by the nonprofit ArtsPower National Touring Theatre, is suitable for children in the sixth grade and older. (Child care will be offered for younger children.) After the play, a survivor is scheduled to talk about his experience leaving his family in Berlin at age 6 to join the Kindertransport. The performance also marks Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom Hashoah, and there will be a service conducted by the Nashville community’s rabbis plus a candle-lighting by survivors of the Holocaust. The whole event is free and open to the public. DANA KOPP FRANKLIN
