Andrea Stolowitz’s great-grandfather kept a journal for his descendants after escaping to New York City in 1939 as a German Jew. Using her German-Jewish great-grandfather’s diary, Lacroute Playwright-in-Residence and three-time Oregon Book Award-winning playwright, Andrea created “The Berlin Diaries,” the autobiographical story of Andrea’s quest to untangle her family’s history. The record keeps as many secrets as it shares. How do people become vershollen, lost, like library books?
