Join us for an original theatrical production, featuring Holocaust survivors and Los Angeles students.
Over the past six months, 7th-12th grade students from all over Los Angeles met with local Holocaust survivors and theater mentors. The students wrote, directed, and will act in scenes inspired by the survivors’ personal narratives.
The production is inspired by Holocaust survivors Joe Alexander, Mary Bauer, Eva Wartnik, and Tomas Kovar. Featuring a capella by the Shalhevet Choirhawks.
Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust's Voices of History programs offer students the opportunity to create meaningful artistic reflections in various mediums. Students learn about the Holocaust through primary sources, informative sessions with Museum staff, and dialogue with Holocaust survivors. Students then interview survivors and collaborate with them to develop their ideas into short films, theater performances, music compositions, and photography exhibits. The final projects capture the personal stories of the survivors, the students' understanding of this history, and their dedication to shaping the future of Holocaust education.
Produced by Ilana Melmed and Rachel Fidler. Directed by Ann Noble. Adapted by Ann Novble and Talya Waldman. Choir directed by Joelle Keene. This Los Angeles premiere of Witness Theater is a production of Voices of History, a program of Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.
