Since November, participants have been sharing real-life stories in an effort to frame Jewish identity, community and responsibility while passing on their memories of survival. Focusing on sharing individual histories and applying those lessons to our future, the ensemble of survivors and students work and play together to create a performance that will honor everyone’s story. Ages 12+.
