Rosenfeld’s War


A docudrama in which six actors take on the roles of 150 historic figures and which dramatizes the failure of Congress to pass legislation in 1939 that would have permitted 20,000 German Jewish children to emigrate to the United States. The play uses actual excerpts from the Congressional hearings to illustrate prevalent anti-Semitism and xenophobia in the country at that time.
