'Eleanor's Story: An American Girl in Hitler’s Germany' Coming to Regional SA


Eleanor Ramrath Garner was an American girl caught in World War II Berlin who wrote an autobiography in 1999 detailing her experiences, titled 'Eleanor's Story'.


Decades later her granddaughter, Ingrid Garner, adapted 'Eleanor's Story' for stage, creating a one woman multi-dramatic play that tours around the globe.

The internationally acclaimed production is now in the next leg of its journey, currently touring regional South Australia.

Anita spoke to Ingrid on the Country Viewpoint today to find out more about Eleanor's Story, and where the play will be showing.
