Eleanor's Story: An American Girl In Hitler's Germany

Eleanor’s Story: An American Girl In Hitler’s Germany (60 min)

Ingrid Garner wrote and performs the internationally acclaimed, theatrical adaption of her grandmother Eleanor Ramrath Garner's award-winning memoir, detailing her youth as an American caught in WWII Berlin.

During the great depression, when she is nine, Eleanor's family moves from her beloved America to Germany, where a new job awaits her father in Berlin. But war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic, and return to the U.S 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.
