“Our Class” – The NYC Premiere

In partnership with Polish Institute New York, Skirball Center welcomed a star-studded ensemble for a reading of the Polish award-winning play, “Our Class.” A diverse audience of 950 people from all over the Greater New York area gathered to see these Broadway and Hollywood legends re-create the fictionalized account of the Polish massacre of Jews in Jedwabne, Poland, in 1941. Directed by Ion Cosmin Chivu, the reading was a doubly stirring success. In memorial of this year’s 70th Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center pays tribute to those millions that perished and to those that courageously survived to tell their stories.
