You don’t have to be Jewish to love Jewish theatre!

Special Performance

In a virtuoso solo performance on ZOOM, Michael Raver portrays Jan Karski in this true story of a reluctant World War II hero and Holocaust witness. After surviving the devastation of the Blitzkrieg, Karski swears allegiance to the Polish Underground and risks his life to carry the first eyewitness reports of war-torn Poland to the Western world and, ultimately, the Oval Office. Escaping a Gestapo prison, bearing witness to the despair of the Warsaw Ghetto and confronted by the inhumanity of a death camp, Karski endures unspeakable mental anguish and physical torture to speak truth to power. A timely story showing of moral courage and individual responsibility.
