In honor of the 75th anniversary of the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto, which began on April 19, 1943, National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene at the Museum of Jewish Heritage presents a special program featuring alumni of Camp Hemshekh, a Yiddish summer camp created by Holocaust survivors.
Located in the Catskill Mountains, the camp was active from 1959 through 1978. Every summer the campers and counselors commemorated the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising with an event featuring poetry and songs, and one year this included the construction of a memorial work of art designed by a young Daniel Libeskind.
In English and Yiddish with English supertitles.
Complimentary admission; advance registration required at nytf.org
