Rescuers Speaking


Drawn from personal testimonies, Rescuers Speaking is a powerful interweaving of memories of both rescuers and rescued from a wide range of countries. It has the advantages of needing no props or elaborate staging, leaving bare the words of the participants during this particularly traumatic period of twentieth century history.
