In Flight: The Story of Sabine Van Dam

Home / Education / In Flight: The Story of Sabine Van Dam

Bring In Flight: The Story of Sabine Van Dam to your classroom or cultural center to experience a vital true story through a unique theatrical experience.

At four years old, Sabine was living happily with her parents, sister, and beloved housekeeper Nana in a beautiful house in The Hague. One morning, her mother told her to put on every piece of clothing and jewelry she owned, and the family walked out and shut the door behind them, never to return. In Flight is a tale of climbing barbed wire to cross borders, hiding in abandoned houses, and the triumph of Sabine’s luminous spirit in the face of terror, betrayal, and devastation.

This program, based on the true story of a Holocaust survivor, has three components: pre-show workshops led by the staff of The Holocaust Museum (and possibly a trip to the Holocaust Museum), a play performed by four actors that can be presented in a classroom or auditorium, and a post-show talkback.

In Flight is a collaborative project between Gulfshore Playhouse and the Holocaust Museum of Southwest Florida.
