Crafted from the actual words and experiences of ten Rochester-based Holocaust survivors, CenterStage Theatre and the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester commissioned this new play to put a human face on this important time in history. A cautionary tale on the risks of normalized hate, this play ensures that the voices of Rochester survivors will never be silenced.

Survivors weaves the shocking and inspirational stories of Eva Abrams, Erich Arndt, Arthur Herz, Ellen Lewinsky, Rosemarie Molser, Henry Silberstern, Helen PrzysuskierEvie Schuerman, Kurt Weinbach and Carl Voldman.
