Adam Son of a Dog [אדם בן כלב]

An adaptation by Alexander Chervinsky: Adam Stein survived the Holocaust by playing a circus dog for the Nazi commander of a camp. He is now in a mental hospital in Israel, reliving his experiences. He was ordered not just to entertain the Nazi officers, but also the Jewish victims on their way to the gas chambers. He is ravaged by guilt for surviving, while his family died.

Better Don’t Talk!

Using the songs, stories, and comedy that her uncle created with her mother in the concentration camps, Naava Piatka performs a one-person show based on the experiences of her mother, Chayela Rosenthal, during the Holocaust. Reliving a life of theatre during the war, the show celebrates the spirit of comedy and hope in the face of real life horror of the Holocaust.
