We Are Witnesses

Based on We Are Witnesses: Five Diaries of Teenagers Who Died in the Holocaust (Holt; Scholastic; MacMillan), the play centers on the thoughts and experiences of five teenagers as they face death. Of the five, only Anne Frank's diary is well known. The play, like the book, speaks of the experiences of teenagers in the Holocaust in different parts of Europe: David Rubinowicz in rural Poland; Moshe Flinker in Belgium: Yitzhak Rudasevski in Lithuania, and Eva Heyman in Hungary.
