Kindness: A Legacy of the Holocaust by Cate Hollis and Mark Wheeller is an emotional and powerful verbatim play centred on the testimony of Hungarian survivor Susan Pollack OBE, who, in 1944, aged 13, was transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. It weaves narratives, including the love story of Mala Zimetbaum and Edek Galinski, against the backdrop of one of humanity's darkest periods. Described as "beautiful and empowering," Kindness ensures Susan's legacy and testimony remain with its audience long after the final bow.
Voices of the Holocaust is the sole specialist Holocaust theatre for education charity in Europe, supported by AJR and the European Jewish Congress. Voices take verbatim plays and supporting education programmes into schools across the UK, providing crucial learning on the Holocaust and antisemitism that is engaging and innovative. Since its January 2022 premiere, Kindness has reached over 100 schools and 25,000 students and nominated for awards, including the International Simon Wiesenthal Prize.
Join us at JFS and bear witness to this powerful story in a unique form of Holocaust education. Following the performance will be a panel discussion with the actors, educators and, Susan herself. Kindness will take you on a journey of survival with a message still relevant today. Your support is critical in these times when 'Never Again' feels like now.
