Witness Theater, now in its seventh year in New York, is an innovative intergenerational program bringing together Holocaust survivors and high school students to elicit, expose and memorialize the moving stories of survival. Through a guided drama therapy process, group members explore issues of war, loss and trauma while at the same time forming deep and meaningful relationships that dissolve the barriers between generations. The film engages viewers with its mix of cinema verité, archival footage, interviews and animation interspersed with scenes of the survivors at home.
