Dara:

This stage production ('Wonderland') was on in
2015 and seems to have disappeared into oblivion.*


A very sad story from Denise:

"The brave Franceska Mann was a Polish-Jewish dancer who was taken to Auschwitz in
1943. When she was ordered to strip, she did so in a provocative manner, which momentarily
distracted the guards. While they were admiring her physique, she quickly grabbed the roll
call officer's gun and shot him, killing him instantly. She wounded one other guard, and her
bravery inspired other prisoners to join her rebellion. Unfortunately, the rebellion was
unsuccessful and all the prisoners who partook in the rebellion were shot dead."
