Northern Starz Children's Theatre presents:


PERFORMING February 16-19

SAVE THE DATE HOW DO YOU SPELL CHANUKAH?? The Jewish Alternative to the Usual Holiday Fare

Over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Terezin, and only about one hundred were still alive when Terezin was liberated at the end of WWII. These few then went back to the scattered pieces of their lives, their homes and their families. Raja lived through it all at Terezin, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little reason for hope. This play is her story. It is history as much as any play can be history, showing the best and the worst of which the human heart is capable.​

​​This unique Northern Starz Children's Theatre event will be much more than a play. We have partnered up with The White Bear Center for the Arts, Temple Israel, Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas “Transfer of Memory”, Sabes JCC (Jewish Community Center) and playwright Celeste Raspanti, to bring our young cast the ability to not just perform, but to truly learn the history behind events surrounding the holocaust and the hope that survived.
