“Why do artists engage the Holocaust experience? What do they wish us to know and to do about it?“ For more than fifty years, the theater has been at the center of the discussion of the great ethical issues raised by the Shoah: justice and injustice, faith and betrayal, goodness and evil, survival and death. Using selected examples of Holocaust drama, including plays he has directed, Skloot will desribe the ways the theater has played a part in our understanding of history and human behavior, and suggest the lessons that “the theater of the Holocaust“ has to offer.
