SB6 (Scraps of Life from the Plate of Death)

Author(s): Gilad Alfasi
SB6, an acronym for “Sonderbehandlung 6” or “Special Treatment 6” represents the last six months of life for the families sent in transports from Theresienstadt to Auschwitz in 1943. The play portrays the experiences and dilemmas of life, rather than focusing on the imminent death, of a group of boys in the children’s block of the camp. 4,000 Czechoslovakian Jews were sent to their deaths precisely six months after their arrival in the camp.
Format: Drama
Notes:

The play was created with the participation of survivors and is based on their recollections and experiences.
