• Claude & Marcel, a play-in-progress written by Dr. Meghan Brodie, performed by Madelyn James and Clare McKelway
• Fanny and Gabriel, an unpublished excerpt, written by Nava Semel, performed by Ginger Grace and introduced by Dr. Sonja M. Hedgepeth
• A panel discussion about women, theater, and the Holocaust

The event marks the launch of the fourth edition of Remember the Women Institute's Women, Theater, and the Holocaust Resource Handbook, as a free downloadable PDF (3.3 MB).

The program was also part of the National Jewish Theater Foundation--Holocaust Theater International Initiative’s Remembrance Readings Day.
