Voices of the Holocaust

International storyteller Shonaleigh returns to her home town of Sheffield with Holocaust theatre and education company Voices of the Holocaust, 7.30pm tonight at the Library Theatre.

 

Shonaleigh was trained in the Jewish storytelling tradition from the age of four by her Grandmother, an Auschwitz survivor. Now she performs all over the world, with her stories of hope and resistance in the darkest of times.

 

Tonight Shonaleigh performs 'The Fool of the Warsaw Ghetto', one of her Grandmother's fairytales from Auschwitz, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising.  

 

Voices of the Holocaust has impressed politicians and scholars around the world, with the University of Wisconsin's Professor Robert Skloot saying: “The work of this new theatre company is very important, and it fills a real need in making knowledge of the Holocaust known and understood through performance."

 

Call the box office on 0114 273 4102 for availability.
