Roses in a Forbidden Garden: A Rock Musical by Elise Garibaldi
English language translator
Brief synopsis: Based off the Amazon best-selling book, Elise Garibaldi adapts the true story of her grandmother - a young German- Jewish girl who finds beauty and love for a man amidst the unspeakable horrors of Hitler's Concentration Camps - to the stage as a rock musical. Garibaldi lends her unique perspective of a granddaughter who has spent her childhood hearing and learning from the stories of the war. We observe the endearing affection Elise has for her grandmother, Inge, as it clashes with her grandmother's disappointment and judgement of Elise's life choices.
Experiences chronicled: European Jewry Before the Holocaust, Germany, Hitler and the Growth of Nazism, Concentration and Extermination Camps, Resistance, Rescue, Perpetrators, Bystanders and Collaborators, Liberation, The Survivors and Subsequent Generations, Women and the Holocaust, Escape, Reactions to the Holocaust
