Sala’s daughter, Ann Kirschner, author of Sala’s Gift, will introduce and moderate a panel that includes playwright Arlene Hutton, documentarian Murray Nossel, and curator Jill Vexler.  They will discuss how the 300 letters sent to Sala Garncarz during her five years imprisoned in Nazi labor camps were transformed into a book, an exhibit, a play, and a documentary film.
