Hitler’s Li’l Abomination

Author(s): Annette Roman
A semiautobiographical solo play by playwright Annette Roman that explores her unusual childhood—her father was a Hungarian Holocaust survivor and her mother was a former member of Bund Deutsche Model (Hitler Youth for girls). The play explores the idiosyncrasies of her upbringing. Her father would recount bedtime stories about the Holocaust, while she remembers seeing her aunt use a swastika-adorned kitchen knife. A unique look at the emotional impact of WWII on those involved.
