The Jewish Innovation
Is there a story that has not yet been told? Is there a story that can touch the hearts and souls of future generations?
Here is that story told through a film.
It begins with the Eichmann trial and its 110 witnesses that took place 50 years ago in Israel.
The story continues with the discovery that fewer than a dozen of those witnesses are still alive.
The magic happens when at-risk teens in a theater program in Jerusalem meet with the survivors to turn their stories into a play.
Take a look:
The Strength to Tell is an artistic and meaningful combination of original film footage from the Eichmann Trial, contemporary interviews with the survivors conducted by the teens, and scenes from the play that was performed in Jerusalem in the same location where the trial originally took place.
The importance of this project rests on the sympathy and empathy that draw these incredibly divergent groups together. From this a new sense of relevancy of the Holocaust and its lessons is revealed.
Come along for an unexpected adventure of incredible significance for the Jewish People and all those who are not willing to forget the past and thus risk repeating a dreadful chapter in world history.
