Sixteen-year-old Sala Garncarz volunteered to take her sister's place when she was ordered to report to a Nazi labor camp in wartime Germany. Neither she nor her family could have imagined that six weeks of required labor would stretch to almost five years of slavery in seven labor camps. Half a century later, Sala reveals her painful history to her grown daughter, documented in more than 350 letters from friends and family that she risked her life to save. The resurfacing of these letters begins an emotional journey of self-discovery for Sala's entire family. Arlene Hutton adapted this true account for the stage from the book Sala's Gift. The letters themselves are considered an important addition to Holocaust research, and were on display at the New York Public Library in 2006. Learn More
