The Underground [במחתרת]


The third play in the Ghetto Vilna trilogy. During the Gulf war, an old man who was hit from the Iraqi attack arrives at a hospital. The young doctor who treats him finds a personal diary of a doctor who worked in Ghetto Vilna. The play is a flashback, and we see the underground secret hospital in the ghetto, with all the dilemmas that arise in such extreme circumstances: Who should get treatment? How to heal with very little supplies? What to do when an epidemic breaks out? And so on.
