Pre-Information for Teachers

Told through the eyes of Sarah Weis, a fictional ‘best friend’ of Anne Frank, this multi-media stage experience brings the reality of the Holocaust into focus for young audiences. Recommended for fifth-grade students through to adults, this show is a poignant, meaningful way to remember the atrocities of the past, in hopes that they may never be repeated again.

Living Voices brings “Life to History” through dynamic solo performances combined with archival film that turns history into a moving, personal journey. A unique combination of Theatre, Video, and Live Interaction creates a high impact experience and an unforgettable journey through history.

See the Through the Eyes of a Friend Teacher’s Guide for more information.
