RUTKA is a powerful new indie-rock musical about a young teen and her friends, trying to live life and find hope, resilience, and resistance, while facing the challenges of the world around them. Based on the internationally-acclaimed book RUTKA’S NOTEBOOK, an actual diary left behind by 14-year old Rutka Laskier in the Jewish Polish Ghetto in 1943.
