Black Sand

A Polish Jew, who is a survivor of a Nazi concentration camp, is visited by his young daughter who has emigrated from Poland and is in love with a black man.

The play also contains a subplot about a Polish woman and her Latvian husband, who as an SS officer in a concentration camp during the war, saved her and her mother’s life. However, the wife does not really love her husband and is, instead, emotionally involved with a Polish immigrant.
