Echoes Of The Holocaust
Legacy Theatre Performing the Yiddish and Shoah Theatre presents the World Premiere of ECHOES OF THE HOLOCAUST. ECHOES is a powerful play that traces the compelling personal stories of eleven Holocaust survivors. These are stories and include poetry, historical footage, and archival music telling the remarkable stories of survivors – in their own words or as told to their grandchildren – as they returned to their hometowns and to the ghettos and concentration camps in which they were imprisoned, and their friends and families murdered as part of Hitler’s “Final Solution.” Above all, Echoes of the Holocaust is a potent depiction of personal strength and courage, and a testament to the power of the human spirit.
The book ECHOES OF THE HOLOCAUST: Survivors and Their Children and Grandchildren Speak Out is written and edited by Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg and Dr. Harry Kantrovich and adapted ECHOES Of THE HOLOCAUST for the stage. Directed by Barbara Hynes Tomczyk and Music Director Jeanne Rylander Echoes of the Holocaust has a large cast; out of the 22 actors, 15 are Jewish.
ECHOES OF THE HOLOCAUST may be about events that happened long ago, but the time to learn from them is now. We have some real problems that have permeated into our society, We all know it and can’t pretend that we don’t. It’s called hate. It’s called bullying. It’s called intolerance. It’s called racism. It’s called antisemitism. Throughout the course of ECHOES OF THE HOLOCAUST, the audience will be posed with a question: What will you do? It is these lessons that we should walk away from the theater thinking about. NEVER AGAIN.
Performances are on January 26, 27, 28, 29, all at 7 p.m. at the Glanton Theater in Calvary Church at 2608 Blaisdell Ave. S. in Minneapolis. TICKETS: echoes.ticketleap.com
