The National Jewish Theater Foundation- Holocaust Theater International
Initiative invites your participation in our 2nd annual Holocaust Remembrance Day
Play Readings to be held on 5/2/2016. Monday has been chosen to avoid
audience conflicts and competing with events previously planned for Holocaust
Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) that falls this year on 5/ 5/ 2016.
Last year our pilot inaugural “Monday before” event honoring the victims and
survivors of the Holocaust involved more than a dozen theaters, universities,
Jewish organizations and embassies throughout the U.S.A. Each selected their
choice of a play to read from our NJTF Holocaust Theater Catalog
(htc.miami.edu). All followed their reading with a conversation or panel
discussion that included their audiences. These simultaneous events took place
in San Diego, New York, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Chicago, cities in Florida,
affirming the unique power of theater in Holocaust awareness and education.
Please go to njtfoundation.org and find Remembrance Readings. You will be
able to read more about this program and find a form to register your
organizations information. This project is greater than any one institution and
encourages collaboration among Artists, Educators, Holocaust Memorial
Organizations and all people who collectively wish to use theater as an artistic
and moral compass that educates and inspires current and future generations.
Thank You and if you have any questions please ask them using NJTF website.
