Understanding the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising through the Theatrical Musical “To Paint The Earth’

Please join the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center, Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County, and the Kupferberg Holocaust Center at Queensboro Community College from the safety and comfort of your home on May 16 at 5 p.m.

In memory of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, which took place in 1943 from April 19 to May 16, three local Holocaust Centers are teaming up with the Richard Rodgers Award-winning musical, “To Paint The Earth” to present a virtual program of music and narration that tells the story of the life of the Jewish Underground during this critical time.  The musical, is based on memoirs and first-hand accounts, that show how even after individual hope is lost, a community can still rise and shout to the world, “We are here.”

The program will include a presentation by one of the writers, Daniel Levin, a live performance by actress and singer, Lauren Lebowitz, an interview with Survivor and ghetto fighter, Michael Struss, and much more.
