Living Voices: Through the Eyes of a Friend

June 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Robert H. Jackson Center invites students in grades 5 through 7 to experience history in a unique way. On Wednesday, June 16 at 9:00 am, the Jackson Center presents a virtual performance of Living Voices’ Through the Eyes of a Friend.  Living Voices is offered by TheatreWorks USA and students will experience a unique multi-media combination of theater, digital, and live interaction that creates a high impact experience and an unforgettable journey through history.

For students in grades 5-7, Through the Eyes of A Friend offers a view into the world of Anne Frank from the perspective of one of her peers to witness the pain, loss, and hope of young people during the Holocaust. This moving program is a poignant portrait of friendship and survival, brought to life through the eyes of Anne Frank’s fictional “best friend,” Sarah. She is a composite character and inspired by the experiences and testimonies of many individuals who knew Anne Frank at certain points in her life as well as those young people who experienced the Holocaust throughout Europe.
