In Commemoration of Yom HaShoah: Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust
On April 13, 2015, Remember the Women Institute launched our new Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust Resource Handbook. The event, in Commemoration of Yom HaShoah, was cosponsored by American Jewish Historical Society and All About Jewish Theatre and held at the Center for Jewish History, New York. View event video.
This special evening of theatre, music featured a dramatic presentation by professional actors and musicians:
Three short dramatic presentations by professional actors and musicians:
• Gretel Bergmann, written and directed by Cynthia Cooper, performed by Stacey Linnartz.
Musical direction and accompaniment by Jonathan Marro.
Following the dramatic presentation, there was a brief illustrated explanation of Remember the Women Institute's new online Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust: Resource Handbook, by Rochelle G. Saidel and Karen Shulman
The event closed with a panel discussion by experts on women, theatre and the Holocaust:
• Rachel Lithgow, Executive Director, American Jewish Historical Society, Moderator
The event coincided with the date of Remembrance Readings initiated by National Jewish Theater Foundation, which encourages using theatre to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive.
The Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust Resource Handbook is now available as a free PDF download. It will also be a feature of a virtual Holocaust Theatre Online Collection encyclopedia, part of the work of All About Jewish Theatre, scheduled for release in 2016.
