JET & HMC Present Three Plays
The Holocaust Memorial Center in partnership with the Jewish Ensemble Theatre, will host professional readings of three new plays inspired by the Holocaust. Please join us to experience the first public readings of these scripts. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from and give feedback to the playwrights and director.
Sunday February 7/2:00 pm: The Groyser by James Harmon Brown
Tensions rise as a family reunites and old resentments surface. Will love triumph over the unexpected?
Sunday February 14/2:00 pm: Struck by Sandy Ruskin
A fascinating take on the Nazi art thefts as told through a contemporary lens when a young couple is drawn into intrigue through a seemingly accidental collision.
Sunday February 21/2:00 pm: Survivors by Jeff Stolzer
What begins as a simple tale of a survivor turns into a hair-raising confrontation when dark secrets are brought to the surface.
All readings will be performed at the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus. Purchase your tickets today by calling 248.788.2900 or by going to www.JetTheatre.org for more information.
A la Mémoire des Enfants Déportés
The Holocaust Memorial Center is pleased to announce that its next exhibit, open to the public January 27 - May 15, 2016, will be A la Mémoire des Enfants Déportés. Eleanor Winters' delicate yet powerful calligraphic artworks evoke the memory of the 11,400 French Jewish children who were deported - and the vast majority murdered - between 1942 and 1944 through the complicity of the French Vichy Government. Inspired by plaques erected throughout Paris, the poetic phrasing of the exhibit reflects an almost unbearable sorrow and shame through which the artist's message shines: Ne les oublions jamais (We must never forget them).
