A touring play teaching the Holocaust and tolerance

SURVIVORS is an hour-long, educational, and inspiring docudrama with a young and diverse cast, who enact the history of the Holocaust through the eyewitness accounts of ten survivors.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
~Nelson Mandela


The indomitable individuals depicted in SURVIVORS teach history and provide hope, life lessons, and encouragement to speak up and act against today’s hatred and bullying. In an era of great divide with increased incidents of antisemitism, racism, religious hate, hate based on sexual orientation, and hate-fueled violence, we cannot silently stand by and allow selected groups to be singled out and marginalized.

We cannot let hatred become normalized!

We must begin by teaching our children the lessons we have learned from the Holocaust. Suitable for middle school through adult audiences, this play about the past is both a warning and a wake-up call for the present and the future.


To combat prejudice, we teach children tolerance and the importance of inclusion. Holocaust history and survivor stories help students identify and understand the dangers and repercussions of prejudice and how to act against it.
We must never forget that between 1939 and 1945, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews across German-occupied Europe; around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population. Five million of Hitler’s other “undesirables” were also brutally murdered, including people of color, gay people, the mentally and physically challenged, priests, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the Roma and Sinti people.
These eleven million were killed because of antisemitism and hatred for those who were not deemed to be superior Aryans. These atrocities are considered by some to be the worst genocide in history. Others deny that it ever happened.

"I'm a 95-year-old Holocaust survivor and frequent speaker on the subject, impacting thousands. I must tell you that your powerful play indeed fills a dire need to enlighten the vast ignorance in the larger public. For this noble effort I salute you and applaud your so impactful play, SURVIVORS."

"As a grandson of Holocaust survivors, I found this play to be a very accurate re-telling of the experiences my grandparents went through. In one hour, the play illustrated their stories of hope and loss, of hiding and surviving, and the ultimate sacrifices they made for their families. watching this was one of the most moving and impactful hours of my life."
