Holocaust Survivor Fulfilling Her Dream in NE Ohio

adultinge in postFinding personal empowerment despite a past of oppression, deprivation, and sickness, that is the story of Holocaust survivor, writer, and lecturer Inge Auerbacher.

She will bring her inspiring message to the Greater Cleveland area later this week, with multiple appearances from Nov. 14 through 20.

While here, she will fulfill a personal dream as she sees her life portrayed on-stage in The Star on My Heart,” an original world premier play by Chardon playwright Angela Miloro-Hansen – the culmination of a two-year collaborative project by Miloro-Hansen and Auerbacher.

The Star on My Heart,” based on Auerbacher’s first two memoirs, tells her story from the perspective of an adolescent Inge, confined to a TB hospital in New York, while reliving her earlier experiences as a child in Occupied Europe.

“Inge’s story is a truly inspirational one. It’s an honor to for me to be able to share it with a wider audience,” said Miloro-Hansen.

Due to her illness, Auerbacher was prevented from beginning school until age 15. Despite immense obstacles, she was able to earn doctorate degree and work as a chemist for 38 years. Later in life, she published several books and has travelled the world sharing her story of survival, hope and determination.

The Star on My Heart will be performed at the Geauga Lyric Theater Guild in Chardon on Nov. 13, 14 and 15. For tickets and further information please call (440)286-2255 or click here.

This production will also be performed at the Shore Cultural Centre in Euclid on Nov. 20 21 and 22. For tickets and further information on these showings, please call (216)289-8578 or click here.

Inge Auerbacher will also be speaking at multiple venues throughout the week, including a lecture at the Geauga Theater in Chardon on Sunday, Nov. 15, at 8 p.m. and at Shore Cultural Center (Euclid) on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 p.m. $10 at the door or free with ticket stub from “The Star on My Heart.“
