World premiere staged reading of docudrama with music about young heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. From 1941 to 1943, three hundred heroic young men and women lived and loved, while fighting the Nazis, in what became known as the Warsaw Ghetto Resistance and Uprising.
They were more than just warriors. They held the German army off for twenty seven days. This was longer than France or Poland was able to achieve. They had dreams, romances, passions, ambitions, and a zest for life. They laughed, they sang, they danced. They were innocent victims of unimaginable circumstances not of their doing. This is a moving tribute to their courage and determination. This is their heroic story.
Presented in partnership with San Diego Rep’s Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival
