A FRESNO ARTS COUNCIL SIDE DOOR PRODUCTION
Janka is a compelling account of Janka Festinger from Sighet, Romania, who survived the Nazi Holocaust, fell in love and married an American soldier, and immigrated to the United States to live the American Dream. At 75, she finally shares her story. Adapted from her 60-page handwritten letter, it describes in striking detail the events of the Nazi internment of Romanian Jews in 1944. Adam Rosenberg, a NY critic, called Janice Noga's performance "mesmerizing".
