As the last generation of Holocaust survivors live out their final years, the number of individuals who are physically and mentally able to recount first person experiences dwindles, leaving the question of what will happen to their stories. Through drama therapy exercises, Brooklyn high school students bear witness to the experiences of three Holocaust survivors. The Witness Theater program forges deep personal connections between the students and survivors, ensuring that their stories will live on.
