Eleanor’s Story is an adaptation of the autobiography of Eleanor Ramrath Garner’s youth, growing up as an American girl caught in World War II Berlin.

In the fall of 1939, at 9 years old, Eleanor and her family left New York on the SS Hamburg bound for Germany. A new job and a secure financial future awaited her father in Berlin. Half-way across the Atlantic, Hitler declared war on Poland and return to America became impossible.

This is the true story of Eleanor Ramrath Garner growing up as an American in Nazi Germany during WWII, adapted for the stage, from her award-winning autobiography.

The play will expose audiences to an entirely unique story about the horrors of war and help them to understand that every casualty of war is a person, not a number. Contains mild sexual references and adult themes.
