Ages 13-18

When siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Avonlea, a small town on Prince Edward Island, decide to adopt an orphan boy to help with their farm, they never expect to get talkative redhead Anne Shirley instead. Anne’s arrival at Green Gables immediately stirs up the Cuthberts’ predictable, even-keeled lives — and before long, they’re so attached to her that they can’t bring themselves to send her back to the orphan asylum after all. With her vivid imagination and constant chatter, the impulsive Anne has an impact on everyone she meets, from busybody Rachel Lynde to “bosom friend” Diana Barry to handsome Gilbert Blythe, the boy who dares to call Anne “Carrots.”

Over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Terezin, and only about a hundred were still alive when Terezin was liberated at the end of the war. One of the survivors, Raja, having lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little enough reason for hope, creating a little world of laughter, of flowers, and butterflies behind the barbed wire, tells the true story of the children. It’s her play and it’s theirs. There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to live on and play happily while waiting to be transported.
