for primary & secondary students
This award-winning show tells the story of Hitler’s Daughter through the eyes of four Australian children Mark, Ben, Anna and Tracey. As the friends wait for the school bus on a rainy morning in the Australian countryside, they take it in turns to tell stories.
On this particular morning, Anna tells a story about a young girl, Heidi, whose father was one of the most notorious men of the twentieth century. As the story jumps between Germany in the 1940s and the Australian bush in the present day, each of the characters is confronted with issues of morality, personal responsibility
Could Heidi have stopped the atrocities of genocide, war and hate her father raged on the world during WWII? Would he have acted differently in her place? Heidi’s story leads him to question his own identity and the world around him.
