Embers and Stars: The Story of Petr Ginz

Friday, February 14, 2014 at 7:30pm

Scales Fine Arts Center, Ring Theatre 1834 Wake Forest Road Winston-Salem, NC 27106

Petr Ginz was a marvel. He wrote novels and poetry, made linocuts and watercolors, invented designs for spaceships and secret codes. And he was murdered by the Nazis when he was only 16. Embers and Stars, The Story of Petr Ginz is a story about imagination and courage, about family, love, and unquenchable curiosity. It’s about remembering and celebrating a boy who should have lived.

Note: Due to limited seating in the Ring Theatre, no late admission will be allowed.
