Witness Theater

August 1 | 6:00 pm - August 4 | 6:00 pm

High school students reenact Holocaust survivors’ touching stories of resolve, in WITNESS THEATER, a unique program of staged testimonies. Seeking to transmit these accounts to the next generation, a New York drama therapist gets survivors and teens together to chronicle history, one generation to another. Their blossoming friendship culminates in a joint performance, keeping history alive through theatrical storytelling.
