Event Description

Remember the Women Institute presents an evening of dramatic readings focused on women’s resistance during the holocaust. David Meyers’ "We Will Not Be Silent,"‎ tells the true story of Sophie Scholl, a German college student who led the only major act of civil disobedience during the Second World War. Cynthia L. Cooper’s one act play "At the Train Station in Munich" unfolds the inner monologue of a woman attempting to escape the attention of possible Nazi threats. “In Her Words: Stories of Survival and Resistance,” by Virginia D’Albert-Lake, Geneviève de Gaulle Anthonioz, Gemma La Guardia Gluck and Isabella Leitner will be performed by Ursinus College students, and Untitled Theater Company #61 and Mad Jenny Theatre preform songs and sketches from a Terezin cabaret. The evening also serves to launch the third edition of “Remember the Women Institute’s Women, Theatre and the Holocaust Resource Handbook,” edited by Rochelle G. Saidel and Karen Shulman. A panel discussion and reception will follow the readings.
