Holocaust Remembrance Day to connect 9 states with plays


NEW YORK (AP) — Events in nine states will honor Holocaust Remembrance Day with readings of plays that deal with that darkest time in world history.

The second annual Remembrance Readings program will include the reading of “2.5 Minute Ride” by Lisa Kron, “The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui” by Bertolt Brecht and “The Timekeepers” by Dan Clancy, among others.

The states participating on either Sunday or Monday include New York, Florida, Illinois, California, Wisconsin, Alabama, Oregon, North Carolina and Massachusetts.

The annual event, launched by the National Jewish Theater Foundation, draws upon the over 600 plays in their Holocaust Theater Catalog at the University of Miami, the first comprehensive archive of theater materials related to the Holocaust.
