Matinee of theater readings
• The Spoken and the Unspoken, a play written by Cynthia L. Cooper, featuring professional actors Stacey Linnartz and Claudia Schneider, and dramatizing our work about sexual violence during the Holocaust.
Remember the Women Institute hosted a matinee of readings to complement our art exhibition, VIOLATED! Women in Holocaust and Genocide.
• Excerpts and songs from In the Underworld, written by Germaine Tillion in Ravensbrück women's concentration camp. Performed and sung by Charlotte Torres, Angela Bey, Mya Flood, Indira Joell, and Bella Ragomo, students of Dr. Meghan Brodie, Ursinus College, with an introduction by Dr. Brodie.
• The premiere of A Congolese Refugee Lives to Survive, performed by Abigail Ramsay and written by Cynthia L. Cooper, adapted (with permission) from an interview conducted by HIAS in South Africa.
A panel discussion about art and theater followed. There was also an opportunity to view the exhibition.
The readings were presented to accompany Remember the Women Institute's exhibition, and are also part of the National Jewish Theater Foundation/Holocaust Theater International Initiative Remembrance Readings.
The exhibition runs until May 12.
