Terezin, Children of the Holocaust
Award-winning play set in a diabolical, false-fronted prison camp in 1943. Six children face the psychological barbarism of the Nazi war machine. With courage, hope and art, they demonstrate the resilience of the human spirit. "Terezin" is written by Anna Smulowitz, the daughter of two Auschwitz survivors and the play is a tribute to her many relatives who died in the Holocaust. The play won the 1984 American Television award and was given a five star review by the 2011 Edinburg Fringe Festival.
"Terezin" provides a historical context in which to examine critically important issues such as hatred,predjudice bullying and indifference present in our communities and schools."
"The Play is an important tool, not just for Jewish children but for all children to learn about racism, social responsibility and individual choice." Judith Kamber, Chair Diversity Committee Northern Essex College.
"This is a five star show because it is superbly conceived, superbly acted by children who put many a fringe veteran to shame, despite being Americans with no direct experience of the holocaust. For a deeply moving piece of theatre this Fringe look no further." (2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival review)
