A high school teacher’s reaction...

“Such great singers and actors…! The set reminded me of the barricades from Les Miserables and gave the same chilling realization of oppression.

Your students not only came across in a professional manner during the show but also handled questions very well after.”

Reactions from student audiences

“… no child should have to fight and risk his or her life."

“…we should never let it happen again."

"…Our life is so easy, we have it handed to us.”

“When they acted I felt like I really met the real people from the Holocaust.”

“…it was nearly impossible to survive, especially for the children.”

“Don’t bully, because Hitler and the Nazis bullied the Jews which led to death and horror.”

“We have to help the less fortunate countries where things like the Holocaust are happening every day and we are not really aware of it.”

“Everyone is human.”
