Witness Theater – JDC Eshel’s Theater Program for Holocaust Survivors
An innovative intergenerational “journey” for Israeli Holocaust survivors and third generation Israeli high school students. Witness Theater offers a therapeutic process by which Holocaust survivors can come to terms with their past, spreading testimony through the retelling of their stories. The program aims to simultaneously provide catharsis for the survivor generation and connect them with their grandchildren’s generation; thus passing on the memory of the Holocaust to a new audience.
