"I found this show to be very interesting, especially the relationship between Eva's mother and Otto Frank. I enjoyed learning a new perspective on the Holocaust through a theatre show."
-------Allison; Robert Morris University student
"it is as if Eva were right there. This is an important play which will continiue on Eva's Story long after she can no longer have the strength to continue her mission to educate the world of the atrocities of the Holocaust and the World of Anne Frank. Eva, Anne Frank's step-sister and survivor of Auschwitz is a remarkable story which [you] and your family must see."
" 'The conclusion of the play leaves us with both an appreciation of what those who were persecuted endured but also a challenge to remember these events so that we can make sure these events will not repeat themselves."
---------- Dr. Dennis Henneman, Professor Emeritus of
Theater and Dance, Youngstown State University
"I was overwhelmed by the wonderful one-woman show here in New Castle yesterday. That actress deserves a [Tony] Award for her deeply moving portrayal of Eva Schloss, and the story is beautifully told. I hope the show is taken up by other acting companies to get more exposure all over the country and beyond. The set was marvelous, and the interplay of actress and video were intriguing."
----------- Dottie Brown, New Castle, PA
"Being from a Jewish Family, I have grown up hearing Holocaust speakers and stories. However, the multimedia transformed Eva's story into something I really related to. I'm really glad I went to this show."
------ Miriam; Robert Morris University student
"The story is quite amazing. Eva was a very tough woman, who also benefitted from a bit of luck. I learned a lot from this story, and I'm glad my school cared enough to show it!"
------ Patrick; Robert Morris University student
