<i>Franklin Clark/Cadiz Record<p> Five professional dancers from the Nashville Ballet (above) performed an original performance of “Anne Frank” for Trigg Countians last week at the Trigg County High School Gymnasium.</i>
At age 7, Clark Blatteis, now a resident of Memphis, Tenn., was a refugee on board the MS St. Louis in May 1939, not long before the outbreak of World War II.

“We were turned away and began sailing back and forth in the Miami harbor,” Blatteis said. “The U.S. Coast Guard wouldn’t allow us to beach and eventually the ship returned to Germany.”

Frances Cutler, now a resident of Nashville, Tenn., survived the Holocaust by hiding in plain sight. She had two religions, five names, seven homes and eight families during the course of the war. She and her parents had moved to France from Poland in 1938, and she was born there not long after the move.

Blatteis and Cutler spoke to Trigg Countians about his experiences Thursday night, after the six-person-strong Nashville Ballet put on a production of “The Diary of Anne Frank” in the Trigg County High School Gymnasium.

Earlier on Thursday, the ballet troupe put on the show for Trigg County Middle and High School students. On Friday, Trigg County Primary and Intermediate School students were treated to a production of “Ferdinand the Bull.”
