The Holocaust and Human Rights Center plans to present “Bella, An Immigrant’s Tale,” by actress and playwright Vicki Summers, at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 15, at the center at 46 University Drive in Augusta.

This one-woman play chronicles the remarkable life journey of Vicki’s beloved grandmother, Bella, from the pogroms of Russia (present day Ukraine) to a new life in America as a Jewish immigrant — filled with courage, humor and love, according to a news release from the center.

The play, even more relevant now with the crisis in Ukraine, is authentic, poignant, and funny.

A short slideshow, conversation with the audience, and a reception will follow the performance. A receipt of a donation to UNICEF, an organization helping Ukrainian children and families, will be the ticket to enter the performance. Masks are required.

Seating is limited to 75. To register, visit hhrcmaine.org. For more information, contact Sara Lennon, marketing and communications coordinator, The Holocaust and Human Rights Center, at [email protected] or 207-415-1973.

Visit vicki-summers.com for her biography, photos, reviews and a trailer.
