Remembering the Holocaust

Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom Hashoah in Hebrew, begins at sundown on Sunday, April 7. The date of the observance marks the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising. On this day, a very special theatrical event will take place at the  Hudson Opera House.

My Anne is Anne Frank's story brought to life in a "sensitive, lively, and inspiring solo performance." Anne Frank, of course, was the Jewish girl who lived in hiding with her family for two years in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam during World War II and kept a diary during that time. My Anne, which is taken from those diary entries, is adapted and performed by Sarah Shaeffer and developed and directed by Carol Rusoff.

A reception follows the premiere performance, which begins at 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 7. There will be a second performance on Friday, April 12, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door.
