More than 70 years ago, Aron, Eazek, and Claudine lost their entire families during the Holocaust before coming to the U.S. and settling in New York City. Now they are sharing their stories with high school students in a program led by a drama therapist. The result is a story that imparts insights into the effect of the past on multiple generations of Jews, while also illustrating the power of transmitting experience from one generation to the next.
SPECIAL FEATURE: The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, in partnership with the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, have been working with young people to help them develop skills including creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration. Readings from this collaboration will be performed after the screening.
