Madhatter and White Rabbit will lead you through our tale of 5 Alices from history. Alice 1 is Alice young. She was one of the first to be hung as a witch in Salem, America. Alice 2 is Alice Liddell, the story book child, the real person behind Lewis Carrol''s Alice in Wonderland. Alice 3 is Alice Herz, a Jewish immigrant who set herself on fire at the age of 82 on the corner of a street in Detroit in protest at the Vietnam war. Alice 4 is Alice B. Toklas, a famous lesbian and partner to Gertrude Stein. They were part of the avant-garde in Paris. Alice 5 is Alice Orlowski, a concentration camp guard who was tried for war crimes.
