10 December 1944
Eugene Schwartz began to write “The Ordinary Miracle”
The work lasted for 10 years. Schwartz admitted that this work was especially dear to him, and he could write it only in those moments when he “felt human”. The author's fondness for this play was explained by the fact that he dedicated it to his beloved wife, Ekaterina Schwartz. At first the writer named his work “The Bear”, but later he changed it to “The Ordinary Miracle”.
