Genre: Kids
Written by Sandra Fenichel Asher and Directed by David Montgomery

Walking Toward America by Sandra Fenichel Asher is inspired by the true story of one family’s experiences during and after World War II when they fled their beloved home in Latvia in search of safety and freedom. Their journey included a forced labor camp, a 500-mile journey across war-torn Germany in the dead of winter, and a storm-plagued voyage to the United States. This dramatized memoir captures courage, determination, sacrifice, and triumph through the eyes of one young girl coming of age in extraordinary times.The play is appropriate for ages 10 and up.
