So This Is Our Leni?!
Hop Hop theatre company, from Ostrov in the Czech Republic, presents a story of a little girl Leni, who was sent to be "re-educated" in Nazi Germany. A powerful story performed in English and Czech.
'My name is Leni Freiwald. We are a "damizen" family here. That means we survived the first war, which wasn't as horrible as the second. Both of them were bad for our family because my Grandpa, the watchmaker, died in the first one. My Grandma died after that.'
This is the
story of our Leni, who was "re-educated" in Nazi Germany.
