In collaboration with Israeli Stage, Temple Israel will be observing Holocaust Remembrance Day this year by hosting the play “The Strawberry Girl.” A German woman and her son Ludwig live in Poland, where her husband works at a factory. Their lives change after she meets a Jewish girl who grows strawberries, as big as a man’s fist. The play deals with the confrontation of blissful ignorance and a tragic personal intimacy.

Playwright Savyon Liebrecht was born in Munich, Germany, in 1948, to Holocaust survivor parents. Liebrecht has published seven collections of short stories and novellas and two novels. She has received awards for two of her TV scripts, the Alterman Prize (1987), the Amelia Rosselli Prize for Mail Order Women (Italy, 2002), the Maior-Amalfi Award for A Good Place for the Night (Italy, 2005) as well as Playwright of the Year for her plays It’s All Greek to Me, Apples in the Desert, Rohale’s Getting Married and The Banality of Love.
