Survivors

Meet your NYS teaching mandate for Holocaust education with Survivors, a new 60-minute play inspired by the lives and words of ten Holocaust survivors living here in Rochester.

Students have a look at the lives of ten Survivors, experiencing them as young people and again as adults, and hearing their remarkable stories of both incredible hardship and courageous survival. Our original script features the actual words of the local Survivors themselves, caringly and accurately portrayed by our troupe of six professional actors.

Survivors garners incredible reactions from educators and students alike...

"What a powerful performance for audiences of all ages! You have very successfully integrated the history of the Holocaust with these ten Holocaust Survivor stories! I am very impressed with the production and the impact of the stories."
-Elana Samuels, Museum of Tolerance, Los Angeles

“Such an impressive experience that I hardly know where to begin. The text is beautifully complex yet simplistic in its messages.”
