Women, Theater, and the Holocaust Yom HaShoah Webinar - Thursday, April 8, 2021, 4:00 PM (EDT)
We are pleased to invite you to a special Women, Theater, and the Holocaust Yom HaShoah Zoom webinar at 4:00 PM EDT on Thursday, April 8. The program features three original dramatic presentations:
“Renia & Arianka” is a one-act play based on Renia’s Diary: A Holocaust Journal by Renia Spiegel with her sister, Elizabeth Bellak (Arianka Spiegel). The presentation is adapted and directed by Dr. Meghan Brodie, Associate Professor of Theater at Ursinus College, and performed as a concert reading by Ursinus Theater majors Emily Bradigan, Zara Tabackin, and Ali Wolf.
“Here Lived (Hier wohnte)” is a new short one-woman play by Cynthia L. Cooper. The play tells the story of a New Jersey woman searching her family roots in Germany. She finds unexpected results from the Stolperstein project and the people there doing remembrance work. The reading is presented by professional actor Ginger Grace.
“Etty” excerpts are performed by Susan Stein, who has adapted Dutch Holocaust victim Etty Hillesum’s words from her diary and performed this one-woman play internationally. Etty's words, insights, and beliefs reach out from the Holocaust and allow us to see the power of hope and individual thought in the most extreme circumstances.
